10 Mar Simple Tips for Effectively Giving Back
We have made giving to good causes a central element of the Capitol City Expansion culture, and we encourage you to make community support a point of emphasis as well. To help you make the most of your giving efforts, we recommend that you put the following strategies to good use.
Begin by being proactive and open-minded about the cause or causes you want to support. You can’t wait to be asked to bolster your philanthropic commitment; it must come from a place of genuine care. With that in mind, it’s best to poll your team members and find out which charities they are most passionate about supporting.
When you decide on a few causes, you need to research nonprofits to find out which ones make the biggest impacts. There are several online resources that will help you determine the best options, including GiveWell and Charity Navigator. Our Capitol City Expansion leaders recommend that you spend some quality time with these sites before you donate any of your time or money.
It’s also a good idea to spread your charitable efforts well beyond your local area. While we suggest that you give to some causes in your community, we also believe it’s important to look to the developing world if you want the biggest bang for your giving buck.
