5 Tips For More Cost-Effective Giving This Year

Ultimately, giving is a way to support a cause that you’re passionate about and that you believe in. And so, it’s important to ensure that your donation makes the biggest impact towards the cause, as opposed to an organization’s overhead or other activities like fundraising. To safeguard your giving and make sure it goes to the right coffers, check to see if who you’re giving to matches the kind of passion you have, and don’t be afraid to audit charities. You should be able to look at what you give to a charity as a step toward building the kind of world you want to live in.

Key Takeaways:

  • Always do your homework before giving and make sure the charities you consider are legitimate and see how they spend their funds.
  • When you find a charity that is important to you, that you care about and believe in, consider setting up payments to give regularly.
  • Charities and non profits are not exactly the same, so be sure it is a registered charity by checking the CRA website if you’re wanting a tax deduction.

“Using your head as much as your heart when giving is important, so ensure you’re giving to a charity/cause that will most effectively manage your contribution.”
