Smart Charitable Giving

This time of year typically brings out charitable organizations most aggressive fund raising efforts.  In this age of tight budgets charities of all types and sizes are having a tough go of it.  We hear a lot from clients on how frustrated  and sometimes overwhelmed they are with their donations and have found this wonderful website http://www.givesmart.org/Home.aspx  that addresses many of the issues we hear clients asking about such as: 

  • What are my values and beliefs?
  • How do I work with grantees?
  • What will it take to get the job done? 

We’d like to hear any feedback you might have of the site especially if you find it helpful.
