Column: Give Local: Fundraising goes digital

One of my favorite children’s books is Shel Silverstein’s “The Giving Tree,” which chronicles the life of a child growing up beside a tree.
It is a story of how the tree provides for the boy throughout his lifetime. First the tree offers apples, then climbing branches, finally shade and rest for the older man as he reflects on his life. In this tale, the tree is the teacher or coach, the boy is the student. Viewed another way, the tree is the community, the boy its citizen.
