from Carl Kruse
Philanthropy is usually the least thought out, most disorganized part of our financial activities. We know charitable contributions save us taxes. Whatever we give away is that much less we give to the IRS. But the question we rarely ask is: How can I maximize not only my tax benefits but the power that philanthropy gives me?
Philanthropy is a very powerful tool. Through thoughtfully planned giving, you can:
o Change the world in areas you feel strongest about
o Pass on your wisdom and values to your children and those you love
o Leave your imprint on the world, a lasting legacy that will affect your community for generations to come
The more thought and planning you give to your charitable donations, the more...so to speak...bang you get from your buck-financially, socially, emotionally. This is especially important for women. Why? Call it the Bake Sale mentality.
Women give more often than men, but they give in much smaller amounts to twice as many organizations. Giving small amounts willy nilly significantly erodes the satisfaction we could derive from giving, while it dilutes the impact we could have on the world.
In difficult economic times, donors need to be selective in their donations. A donor should look at the charity/ philanthropy's financial information, to examine how much actually goes to programming. The higher the
percentage that goes to programming, the more comfortable a prospective donor should and does feel. Some excellent local charities still have high operating costs as a percentage of revenues, and if one feels strongly about one of those organizations, the best way to make others want to donate, is by helping the organization reduce its overhead. That is another area where volunteerism is both necessary and worthwhile!
