When you give to others you leave more room in your life to receive more of what you gave. ~ Linsey Mills

Why Don’t The Rich Give More To Charity

There are 3 reasons why the rich don’t give more?

A new study of multi-millionaires provides some insights. A study, by SEI Private Wealth Management, reports that 82 percent of wealthy families believe that having more money means you have a greater obligation to be philanthropic. However, those survey with a net worth over $10 million listed three main reasons for not giving more.
First, nearly half said they needed more confidence “that the level of their wealth would continue to support their lifestyle and their family.”
Second, they said they would give more if the markets improved.
Finally, a third of those polled said they needed to “find something they could be more passionate about.”

With an improving stock market and a recovering economy there could be greater opportunities for organizations to connect with affluent donors who believe in your mission and work.

A Giving Circle is  a type of Social Investment Club created when individuals with similar interests or backgrounds come together, pool their dollars and decide where to donate their collective contributions.   Giving Circles are an excellent method of learning about the local community and focusing on those areas where the collective philanthropy of the group can make a difference.  Each Giving Circle is unique and can be formal with officers and structure or informal, simply allowing members to pools funds to make a donation to a common cause.

I have enjoyed participating and learning about philanthropy through  the Next Generation of African American Philanthropists, a Giving Circle based in Raleigh, NC.
