New York Times coverage of year-end giving

December 16, 2012

Hat Tip to Sendhil for some great recent recommendations from the New York Times about year-end giving:

  1. An interesting endorsement of GiveWell by an Oxford philosopher, who says we should all focus on “effective philanthropy” – impact as many lives positively through our donations as possible.
  2. I really identified with the author of this article, who talked about being more deliberate about his family’s year-end giving.  We definitely do the year-end scramble in our household, and also focus on religious institutions and universities, but also international organizations.  Comment below about how all of you give at year-end and what you think about!
  3. And lastly, a piece that appeals to my former tax lawyer self – Yale Professor Shiller gives a robust defense of the charitable tax deduction and why it’s important that we as a country keep the deduction alive during the coming tax reform.
