THINK OF THE ABI ENDOWMENT ON GIVING TUESDAY

 

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.), #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

We invite you to join this nationwide movement and give today. The generous support we receive from our members and the insolvency community helps us achieve the Endowment’s goal of funding important bankruptcy research and educational activities.
