Six Reasons to Give

leave a comment »

AOL’s Money & Finance section has an article today titled “Six Surprising Reasons to Give to Charity.” I can generally agree with all of them except number one. Here’s the list:

  1. Meet celebrities
  2. Do interesting things
  3. Get cool stuff
  4. Meet interesting people
  5. Feel real good
  6. Enjoy great tax benefits

I really hope people aren’t giving to charities to meet celebrities (#1). Your mind must really be in the wrong place. Meeting interesting people (#4), on the other hand, is completely legitimate. Best of all, and I am an accountant, is number six. Just make sure that you gave enough (but not too much) to be able to take advantage of those benefits!
