Map Out Your Plans To Share Your Treasure

Now is the time to form philanthropic goals for 2012.
  • First, determine what causes are most important to you.
  • Next, develop a list of charities engaged in that type of work.
  • Then, using Charity Navigator’s free website, narrow that list to just a few that are Financially Healthy and have a strong commitment to being Accountable & Transparent.
  • Finally, map out a plan and budget for the year and let the organization know your intentions. Knowing your plan helps the charity keep its fundraising expenses at a minimum while focusing on the programs you intended to support in the first place.
