Being Philanthropic. And Happy.

I sometimes forget to give. If so, certainly not enough. Not in the best way. Each day I think about so many things and I sometimes forget to remember that volunteering and giving time, money, and aid to others is so important. So, in this time of being wiser with money and realizing that our very own efforts can make major change and create a better world, here are some tips from Town & Country’s Tracy Gary that I would like to give to you. Start making your long term plan to be philanthropic.

  • Begin with what you want to change or preserve. Do the organizations to which you’ve been giving or would like to give match your values?
  • Consider what local agencies might now require for support.
  • Assign yourself a giving budget.
  • Recruit friends to join you in giving.
  • Meet with you financial advisors to see how you can make a legacy.
  • Call those organizations that you respect and unleash your resourcefulness.
