Manage Your Giving Like The Rest Of Your Finances

If you’re like most people, you work (very) hard for your money, and you expect a lot in return. Outflow of money can be broken into three general segments: spending, investing or saving, and giving. Accordingly, each of these three segments requires careful planning and strategy to reap the greatest possible return.

The Rest Of Your Finances

When it comes to spending, you make budgets and find great deals on the things you need. You bargain with your kids; you negotiate lodging and airfare for your vacations; and, you think hard before you hand over your Master Card and part with your money.

Even when it comes to your investments and savings, you’re probably much the same: you expect high performance relative to the market, and you expect good service and reasonable fees.

Yet, when it comes to your giving, you have probably – perhaps unknowingly – come to expect much less. It’s difficult to measure return on investment for giving for a few reasons: despite the transparency and speed provided by the Internet, it’s easy to feel disconnected and distant from the projects and work you help fund; there’s no stock market for nonprofits; and disclosure and reporting requirements are cumbersome, slow to publication, and difficult to understand.

But you don’t have to settle for lower standards for your giving. You should – and can – demand more.

You’ve come to demand the most from your spending and savings, and now the time has come to demand much more from your giving. Make it happen with Bright Funds.
