Legacy

Legacy By Example: The Phillips Family

For the Phillips, family legacy is a daily decision.

Keith and Nancy Phillips, long-time fundholders with The Signatry, decided to practice generosity as a way of life. Beyond giving to causes they care about and neighbors in need, they also wanted to pass this tradition down to their children. They gave their children the tools to practice generosity themselves.

Libby, a third-generation Phillips, recalls, "Early on, I remember my dad or my grandparents going to church together, and they would give me a dollar every Sunday to put in the collection plate. Just to get me in the habit."

As the children grew and began earning their own income, the family worked together to develop a unified giving strategy. The guidelines they landed on spell out a memorable acronym: P.E.E. That, of course, stands for Giving to the Poor, Christian Education, and Evangelism.

"Being able to put some structure around our giving has been really helpful to make sure we’re not just giving haphazardly," says Libby. Having shared access to the family DAF account helps them to further organize their giving around this framework.

The family has established a partnership with Community Care Fellowship, a nonprofit that helps people out of homelessness. Now, Andrew and Libby have been able to use their own business to employ many of the organization’s participants.

"This is a process," says Nancy. "We’re still working toward it. But this is our motivation."
