Some people live with a mentality of scarcity and some with a mentality of abundance. Some think of charitable giving as taking a piece of their pie and giving it away so less pie remains for them and their family. But charitable giving is more like inflating a balloon. If you do this right, with the help of expert guidance, you can expand what’s available for everyone. The “why” precedes the “how”, and the “why” is more important. Advisors are full of the “how”. They can show you all sorts of techniques. I think the more important question is the “why”. What is the reason that charitable giving makes sense to begin with?
