CHIP Founding Executive Director Kat Rosqueta wrote an op-ed about how to ensure that your end-of-year donations have an impact on the issues that matter to you, published on the front page of the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Currents section on December 9, 2018.
The end of the year is giving season, and that includes charitable giving. Why do donors give? Because someone asks us. Or we give because of social pressure, to honor a loved one, to thank an organization that influenced us. But often we’re moved to give because we want to make a difference in the world. When the goal of giving is to do good, that’s philanthropy for social impact. When you seek to do as much good as you can, that’s practicing high-impact philanthropy.
