How to give to charity this holiday season – NBC Chicago

Dec 20, 2021

Always check a charity before donating #GivingTuesday begins an upsurge in charitable giving Scroll down to find ways to help communities rally With delivery delays likely and people still to recover from the pandemic or the fires and floods of the year, a charitable donation in someone’s name might be a choice this holiday season. Americans gave at an all time high last year and pundits are hoping that will continue this year as the stock market soars. Donations typically increase at the end of the year, from #GivingTuesday, which is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, until the last day of December. “We are in the second truly unique giving season this year,” said Alix Guerrier, CEO of GlobalGiving, a nonprofit that connects donors with other nonprofits around the world. The pandemic still holds its grip on the world, with vaccines unevenly available and an economic recovery still fragile in places. GlobalGiving focuses on the community-led organizations it controls in over 170 countries, some quite small. Since 2002, he has raised $ 618 million from more than 1.3 million people. “It is possible to donate in someone’s name, for example to an area or topic that concerns them personally,” he said. Gift cards are available so that recipients can choose for themselves where to donate the money. Parents can donate on behalf of their children, as one of the gifts they receive, Guerrier said. “Trains and video games, yes, but also charitable donations,” he said. “The fact that this is the start of a thoughtful conversation about giving, it may be very much in line with other conversations this season.” If you decide to donate, choose carefully. Make sure that a charity’s mission aligns with your friend or relative’s values ​​and has been reviewed by a group such as GlobalGiving. You can verify that it is a charity with the IRS on its website. Find out from Charity Navigator or GuideStar what percentage of the money it receives actually goes to programs and how much is absorbed by administrative or other costs. The Better Business Bureau records complaints. Consumer Reports offers tips for successful giving on behalf of others, ranging from whether they would prefer a traditional giveaway, to asking up front about possible charities, even if it ruins a business. surprise. You can even offer money so that they can make their own donation. “I guess we don’t usually encourage people to donate to a nonprofit instead of giving someone a toaster,” said Jan Masaoka, CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits. “We are very pro-toaster.” “But I would say the holidays are a time when people reflect on their gratitude for what they have and think about helping people who don’t have the same stuff,” she said. “And it can be local or international people, as well as people speaking out and defending their rights, not just helping them directly.” Charitable giving reached a record high of $ 471 billion in 2020, with the pandemic, racial justice protests and the economic crisis prompting the donations, according to a report from Giving USA. This represents an increase of 5% compared to 2019. It is possible to give to someone’s name, for example to a domain or a topic that concerns them personally Alix Guerrier, Managing Director of GlobalGiving At the same time, fewer and fewer Americans made donations, a trend linked to a shrinking middle class, higher college debt, and fewer members of organized religion. Some people had not yet recovered from the Great Recession of 2008 when the pandemic struck, unevenly across the country. “The pandemic has created a sense of solidarity in the sense that we are all in the same boat, in the sense that we are all vulnerable to the virus,” said Amir Pasic, dean of the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University, who wrote the report published by the Giving USA Foundation. At the same time, we know that some of us are more vulnerable than others. According to a study by the Urban Institute’s Center for Nonprofit Organizations and Philanthropy titled Nonprofit Trends and Impacts 2021, more organizations experienced an overall drop in giving in 2020 than in the previous five years. But a quarter of organizations saw their donations increase significantly while another fifth reported donations increased moderately. A quarter saw a significant decline. “There were swirling currents going in opposite directions,” said Elizabeth Boris, founding director of a center and now a member of the Urban Institute. Nonprofits focused on racial justice or natural disasters have done better, but “the arts have been hit hard,” she said.
