How to give & get more from philanthropy

We’re giving more to charity than ever before.1 One reason is that giving feels good. It gives us a warm glow that can inspire us to keep giving.2

That’s probably why charitable contributions have increased by 5% over the past few years1and experts expect this trend to continue.3

That’s promising, but it could be even better.

That’s because about 2 out of 3 people say they want to give more, but they aren’t. Why?
