On occasion, organizations will have fundraisers and drives. This may be a good time to donate since there are things that the organization gives for a certain dollar amount. For example, a donation of $100, one can receive a pack of books, a signed photograph, or their name on a certificate. Sometimes there is a drawing for a vacation or tickets to a show. With this free gift, one can give it to a friend or trade for it.
How one donates is also important too. Taxes should be considered as one can use it on their tax for the donation. Don’t pay extra on a donation when using a credit card. Make sure it is paid off at the end of the month. When the total amount isn’t paid, all of a sudden, one begins to pay high interest on their donation. Pay off the credit card each month. Also, make sure the organization one is donating to gets the contact info of the donor. One can also get points on their credit card. Try donating the highest amount for the highest gift and tell them the company that is comes from (your personal business). Send a thank you letter. Donating stocks is also something that can be done but should be done with care.
