Now that I’ve spent time looking at Self-Care, Volunteering, and Personal Kindness, it’s time to focus a little on the obvious part of being a philanthropist – Charitable Giving. Money, donations, it seems so straight forward and simple but it’s really far from (as most straight forward and simple things usually turn out to be).
Who do you give money too? How much? Is giving things just as good? What about buying things with a “percentage of the proceeds”? I can think of a dozen challenges that the idea of traditional giving brings up.
It’s also a challenging because money is the thing I have the least to give – I’m not Warren Buffet or Kate Middleton. But that just means I have to be even more thoughtful about it. So stay with me for the next few months as I explore this.
What are you wondering about Traditional Giving? Anything you want me to address?
