A philanthropy rut?

January 3, 2013

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to think about whether I’m in a ‘philanthropy rut’.  Each year in November/December, I find myself turning to the same charities for our family’s year-end charitable donations.  I am very happy with my choices, but I want to think about whether to diversify and/or grow our giving a little, especially to include more Canadian nonprofits since we live here now.

My husband challenged me to bring all that I’m learning here at The South Asian Philanthropy Project to our own family philanthropy.  We don’t have a huge amount to give, but we want to spend the year thinking a bit more attentively about how and where we do our charitable giving.

I invite all of you to join us – comment here or send in guest posts about your own giving.  Are you in a philanthropy rut?  Do you want to do more this year?  What values guide your giving?  Do you want to make any changes?
