FERDINAND – Dubois County Emerging Leaders held a summer social this past Thursday at the Tri-County YMCA in Ferdinand.

The evening included a tour of the nonprofit facility led by executive director Mike Steffe and a special address from MasterBrand Cabinets president David Randich, giving his thoughts on philanthropy.

While sharing his philosophy on giving back, Randich encouraged a thoughtful and planned approach. “Learn what’s important to you and try to stick to a plan,” he said.

Randich encouraged the group to get involved in the charities they support when possible. “If you can give some of your own time, that makes a real difference as well,” he said.

Randich highlighted MasterBrand’s deep history in the community, including the 60th anniversary of Aristokraft in Ferdinand and took questions from the audience of nearly thirty young professionals.

Emerging Leaders, a giving circle established in 2012, is a way for young adults to pool their funds to strengthen communities in Dubois County. Each participant commits to giving as little as $120 and will share a vote in where the grant will be directed year end.

To date, the local giving circle has granted over $13,000 to local charities.
