Why give?

Why should you make a charitable donation? (Other than "because you should..." Hey, I'm not your mother!)

  • Charity events give you an opportunity to socialize, network, and make new connections with likeminded folks
  • You can honor, thank, or remember special people in your life (friends, family, clients, the barrista who puts the extra shot of foam in your latte) with a donation in their honor
  • When you give away some of your money, you will feel richer (trust me on this)
  • Tax benefits (if you itemize - more details at
  • Donor benefits are "swag" for the rest of us! (e.g. tickets to special events, discounts on merchandise, fun magazines and publications, etc.)
What other ideas do you have?
