There are so many charities out there that need your help this holiday season. How do you choose which one to give your time and money to? Philanthropy consultant and author Jenny Santi wants you to focus what you’re passionate about and give to a select few charities that support that cause. People typically give small amounts to many different charities, but Santi wants you to just pick one or two because you can do more good for those two than you can for the numerous charities you may currently support.
It’s okay to say no to a charity, says Santi. Embrace what you are passionate about and support that cause with everything you have to give. Your impact will be greater because of your passion and focus.
