Giving can be one of the most meaningful, life-enhancing aspects of our lives. More than a gesture, giving has the potential to help turn around the most serious problems in our troubled world. What we get in return can be invaluable. The question of how much to give is not frivolous. How do we, individually and as a society, stop hoarding financial abundance, using it as a scorecard, or simply pretending it’s not there? What will help us share our resources wisely?

This publication provides six questions to ask as you begin your giving journey. With each one, we’ve offered some suggestions or ideas for reflection to help get you started.  Participating in a Giving Community can support you in exploring how you wish to give.  You may wish to ponder the questions prior to reaching out to the communities that will be recommended to you when you complete the Find Your Match survey.  (Survey is linked within resource)
