C.S. Lewis once wrote, “For many of us, the great obstacle to charity lies not in our luxurious living or desire for more money, but in our fear – fear of insecurity.” Point being, there is a perceived competition for a limited amount of financial resources. If I, as a donor, support a charitable organization, it may be at the expense of mine or my family’s financial situation. The more I give, the less there is for us. What if I could be sure that I and my family would be provided for and I could also support the organizations and causes I care about? With such clarity regarding personal finances, confidence would result in being able to accomplish multiple objectives which would complement and not compete with each other. Such is the goal of all professional financial gift planning. It can and should enhance the well-being of the donor, the family and the organization.
