An interesting observation—two opposite ends of the calendar and two completely different financial focuses.
Have you noticed that the last couple of months of our calendar is often defined as the “Giving Time of Year”? Charities and churches campaign with vigor for your donations through every media possible, everywhere you turn.
In fact, according to “Giving USA 2019: The Annual Report on Philanthropy for the Year 2018,” American individuals, bequests, foundations and corporations gave an estimated $427.71 billion to U.S. charities last year, an increase of 0.7% over the previous year.
