Foundations of Charitable Giving

thought

 

A certain charitable foundation is in the news. It makes me think about generosity. How do you go about your charitable giving?

 

        • I give to causes I care about
        • I give to people I care about
        • I am my own favorite charity
        • I gave at the IRS

I understand why very wealthy people set up foundations to decide how to best distribute their charitable giving to worthy projects. I don’t understand why people contribute to someone else’s foundation. Why give away control of your giving?

2 Corinthians 9:7 (NIV)
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart.bless charitable
