CEO AJ Discala Describes Objectives Of To Be Giving Foundation

Philanthropy is a human characteristic that grows through practice and intention. We all have an innate respect and caring for humanity. Through the course of our lives, this trait can be fostered or sit idle. A meaningful, purpose-driven life is one that fosters this innate human trait. Particularly on traditional Wall Street, we can feel alienated from our desire to care about people and just focus on profit. To counteract the distance from compassion, AJ Discala and The Broadsmoore Group have launched To Be Giving Foundation, a charitable arm of their investment advisory and merchant banking firm.

Philanthropy does not just mean donating material and financial donations. According to AJ Discala To Be Giving provide peace and prosperity to his fellow human beings through supporting humanitarian initiatives and non-profit organizations – with funds and guidance. Through this foundation, Discala hopes to inspire and enable others to engage in acts of kindness that will better the lives of our community’s underprivileged members. It is his passion and willingness to serve others that shows in the work that he has already accomplished.

With AJ Discala To Be Giving has turned into the charitable arm of the Broadsmoore Group.
