A lot of sad news around the world the past few weeks – the Las Vegas shootings; Hurricanes Maria and Harvey and their impact in Puerto Rico, The Caribbean, Texas, Florida; and many more places too long to list, including the earthquakes in Mexico, flooding in India and Bangladesh.
Many of us are looking for ways to help. One way we can help is by giving money. To ensure that your gift actually goes to helping and not to administrative costs, here are three websites you can visit to check the charities you are considering: Charity Navigator, Charity Watch and give.org . Please verify the charity you are considering.
Here’s a way to not only do good but also magnify the tax benefit of your gift: give appreciated stocks, bonds, real estate, and possibly other appreciated assets. Want to learn more? We can help.
Praying for all of those affected…
