Today is Giving Tuesday, a day to be mindful of the many needs around the world, and support the charities and organizations working to fulfill those needs. Today’s infographic from LAAF.org offers four tips to maximize your contributions. As it says, “Giving Tuesday is not just about making a single charitable gift — it’s about creating great impact.”
If you have been following us for a while, you know we are a proponent of budgets. Charitable giving is no exception: make a plan for your donations and include that plan in your overall budget.
Before you give, be sure to research the charity and organization first. Make sure that the charity is legitimate and that they are making the most of your contributions.
Lastly, you don’t need to give money in order to support the causes you are most passionate about. Give your time: volunteer and spread the word!
