Living generously

On Friday, November 13th, at 8:45am, author Rodney Eric López and nonprofit leader Fran Loosen will have a lively Zoom conversation about generous living and how parents can cultivate a culture of giving in their families.

The conversation is free and open to the public, with opportunities for questions from the audience. It is part of the ongoing Coffees with Claire series, talks with various members of the Gordon community curated by Claire Phipps, Gordon’s Chief Advancement and Experience Officer.
