Giving U®

I caught up with these school girls on their way to classes one morning. It was a bright sunny day in the Usambara Mts. in central Tanzania.

Giving U is all about “smart philanthropy” – how to contribute to the charities and causes we care about and how to do it in a way that’s most effective.

One way to do this is by engaging with our communities on a  personal level by volunteering our time, sharing our knowledge, sharing ourselves!

And here’s how we can do it:

  • Donate My Dollars – You choose which worthy nonprofit organizations receive cash donations.
  • GoErinGo! Fund – $25,000 will be donated over the next 2 years. Check out who’s getting the cash.
  • Adventure Philanthropists & Hot Orgs – Meet these inspiring individuals and amazing organizations.
  • The Giving Guide – Offering the motivation and the mechanisms behind effective giving. We share ideas on how to make complex giving choices.

What are you waiting for? Join in the *fun* of philanthropy!
