What does effective giving mean to you?
I recently started as a Development Intern for Givology, a 100% volunteer-run non-profit organization that focuses on person-to-person donation, particularly for education-related initiatives worldwide. It has been an incredible experience so far, and I have had the opportunity to do so much in ways other than just monetary aid. My experiences with Givology have helped me to learn what effective giving means to me, and I am curious as to what others think truly effective giving means.
First, effective giving is to help by getting the biggest bang for the buck. This means I prefer charities which give the largest percentage of donations (80% or more) to the cause for which they're collecting and not to pay the people working there, for advertising, etc. Second, effective giving not only helps the people by giving them money, clothing, or food, it also teaches the people how to provide for themselves.
