National Philanthropy Day celebrated locally.

Ask Ian and Mimi Rolland what gives them joy in life and independently of one another they say, �Giving back to the community.�
The retired Fort Wayne couple oversees a $7 million private foundation bearing their names. They look upon that job as a great privilege and weighty responsibility. Deciding where the 5 percent given annually from the foundation should go is a challenge.
�We get hundreds and hundreds of letters or calls from people who need or want money � some very necessary and some not so necessary,� said Mimi Rolland."
