When I was still young enough to get an allowance, my mom had one rule: give 10% first, save half and then you can keep half. My 10% always went in the form of tithes to my church. At my age, I didn’t like it much, nor did I understand its purpose. Now that I’m older and work in the financial industry, I see that there are not only more advantages to charitable gifting but there are also smarter ways to gift. I’d like to discuss some of the various ways one can donate to charity and some of the strategies used to make the most out of the donations that some are already making.
