Benevolent Gesture

Author Susie Levan donates book proceeds to nonprofits in South Florida

Eight area nonprofits received much-needed funding thanks to the benevolence of local philanthropist and author Susie Levan. The founder of The Work-Life Balance Institute for Women donated gross proceeds from the sales of her book—Getting to Forgiveness: What a Near-Death Experience Can Teach Us About Loss, Resilience and Love—to the local organizations during a private Zoom ceremony.

Each nonprofit received a $5,000 check during the virtual event emceed by local radio personality Ellen Jaffe.

Levan’s book recounts how she “emerged as a stronger soul after surviving a kidnapping and near-death experience.” The book is available for purchase on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

The beneficiaries included:

  • Broward Public Library Foundation
  • Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida
  • Habitat for Humanity Broward
  • Hispanic Unity of Florida
  • Junior Achievement of South Florida
  • Nova Southeastern University H. Wayne Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship
  • United Way of Broward County
  • Women of Color Network Inc.
