Our luncheon speaker for our now postponed Houston Philanthropy Circle Symposium was to be Houston’s Jim McIngvale, who has been a philanthropic leader over the past many years. When we had to reschedule due to the pandemic, we asked if he would produce a message for us. You will find his passionate video on this HPC website. As a small honorarium for his countless acts of charity, we asked him to name his favorite nonprofit so we could highlight it. Jim has chosen the Peace of Mind Foundation, founded by his daughter, Dr. Elizabeth McIngvale. We are honored to add this bonus nonprofit to our Virtual Nonprofit Symposium. Thank you.
