This episode is part of our special webinar series on Using Your Platform For Good In Crisis.
Naturally, our hearts are drawn to making a difference in our own community – particularly in times of crisis. But we may easily tire of the constant request for funding, especially when we feel that we have so much more to offer. The idea of writing a check for meals or funding rent for a family about to be evicted is a privilege, but it’s not leveraged.
David Weekley is Chairman of one of the largest privately owned home builders in the US, David Weekley Homes. When he encountered his own business crisis more than 20 years ago, he decided that if God allowed the business to survive and thrive, he would commit half of his income and half of his time to serving others.
Since overcoming that season of crisis, he has given away millions of dollars to local, national and global causes and spent more than 20,000 hours working with nonprofits to find the best ways to maximize local impact in this crisis.
David recently joined Lloyd Reeb and Doug Piper to discuss lessons learned for leveraged impact.
