ACT for Alexandria

Four Questions with Magaly and Tom Hirst

Magaly and Tom Hirst, long time ACT supporters and Donor Advised Fund holders, share more about how they got involved with ACT and why they love Alexandria: 

How did you get involved with ACT?

We wanted a simpler way to donate to charities without all the requirements of a family foundation. A donor advised fund with ACT lets us give when we are ready and requires no tax filings. ACT helps us identify those nonprofits that are doing things that are important to us in Alexandria, so simplifies our giving decisions.

What do you love about Alexandria?

We love walking along the river and along the picturesque streets of Old Town. There are so many amenities within walking distance and it is such a friendly place. We are fortunate to live in such a special place!

What is your favorite Alexandria Restaurant?

We have so many favorites it would be hard to name just one!

How do you get around town? Walk, bike, drive, boat…

We love to walk as much as we can!

Thank you, Tom and Magaly!
