07 Apr What to Remember When Giving Back
Supporting good causes is a big part of the Proof Management culture, and we hope you will consider boosting your own commitment to giving. If you want to ensure that your donations make the biggest possible impacts, we recommend that you keep the following points in mind.
First, you must choose the right organization to support. It’s best to pick a cause with your heart but then select a charity with your head, and thankfully there are a few good resources that will help you do so. We at Proof Management suggest Charity Navigator and GiveWell as ideal tools for homing in on the ideal nonprofit.
It’s also important that you give directly to whichever organizations you choose to support. Charities sometimes hire third-party firms to engage in telemarketing, but this just diminishes the impact your contributions have in the long run.
There are also some useful apps that help you give without really having to think about it. Our Proof Management leaders recommend Bstow, which rounds up each purchase you make with your debit or credit cards to the next dollar and then automatically gives the difference to a charity of your choosing. This is a great way to track your giving throughout the year and make the appropriate tax deductions.
