The year-end holidays are a time of religious and moral reflection that inspire many people to reach out to those who are in need. Less altruistically, but still just as important, donors need to make their end-of-year giving decisions by December 31 to qualify for a tax deduction in this calendar year. As a result, a tremendous amount of charitable giving occurs between #GivingTuesday and the end of the year.
If you choose to participate in the year-end charitable giving season, then we encourage you to take the time to ensure that your donations are doing the most good for the causes you care about. To assist you in conducting your due diligence, we’ve created a Holiday Giving Guide. In it you will find a set of five questions that donors should ask themselves before giving, a special top/bottom charity list and a set of interesting facts about charitable giving.
