Saying “NO” to be More Generous:

Over the next couple of months, we will have many opportunities to contribute to many non-profit organizations.  I believe the key to having the most significant impact in generous giving is learning to say “NO” (read the whole blog before you start hating me).

I’m not talking about saying “NO” to every non-profit organization; I’m talking about saying “NO” to many or most of them.  Here’s what I’m suggesting:

First, take a look at how much money you plan to give away this season.  Second, instead of choosing 6-10 different organizations to assist, why not choose1-3?  I know this means you will have to say “NO” to a few fine-worthwhile causes; but remember, the idea here is to make a larger impact on fewer organizations.

Next time, I’ll talk about how to choose the most worthwhile causes to support during the holiday season.
