The “someone” who comes to mind might be a peer, mentor, friend, or close family member. Let that person know that his or her guidance has been important in your decision making, and the ways in which it has led you to more effective philanthropy.
What is the #30DayDonorChallenge? Inspired by the example of 30 Days of GOOD, and mindful that many people turn their attention to philanthropy during the holiday giving season, we at Give Smart thought we’d try our own campaign. Each weekday, we’ll tweet a challenge on how you can make your philanthropy just a little more effective. Why are we doing this? Donors often talk about the big impact their grantees are having and the big impact that they’d like to have with them. But sometimes, the "little things" we say or do can create profound changes.
These suggestions are intended to be fun but are also drawn from our decade-plus experience working with philanthropists and the nonprofits who often (well, sometimes) love them.
Our goal? That in this holiday giving season you will find simple, practical ways to keep great philanthropy top of mind. You’ll find the challenge here each day, or sign up via RSS feed or email below. You'll also find these tweets and more on Twitter at @BridgespanGroup under #30DayDonorChallenge.
