Giving Tuesday Tips
NMLS id:

In the United States, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year on November 26th, is known as ‘Giving Tuesday,’ a movement to create a day of giving to kick off the holiday season.  But with so many non-profits and charitable organizations out there, how can you be sure who to give to?

Our advice: Be generous, but give wisely!

Some things to remember for “Giving Tuesday”
· Many non-profits make as much as 30-40 percent of their overall budget at this time of year.
· Check out GuideStar (a resource for info on non-profit organizations) or your local attorney general’s office to make sure the charity is legitimate, and to assess how their funds are spent.
· Click here for information on tax deductions for charitable contributions.
· Be wary of telemarketing solicitations. Less than half of every dollar raised goes to charity. Help elderly relatives with their giving to minimize the threat of scams.
· Charitable giving should be treated like any other expense and budgeted for.
· Support causes that are important to you, but budget for unexpected requests from friends.

What causes will you be supporting this year and why? Let us know quickly, and we will give a shout-out to them on our website!

Happy Giving!
