Philanthropic New Year's Resolutions
New Year’s resolutions are usually something related directly to ourselves—losing weight, exercising regularly, you name it. This year, consider making a New Year’s resolution that will benefit others. You can make this the year you become more deliberate in your giving.
Often, people focus on their resources of Time, Talent and Treasure. There is another “T” to add to this list. Have you ever included your Ties in what you give to others?
Networks are meaningful, and personal ties are becoming increasingly important in giving. Whether through social media to promote a cause, or coming together as a family or group of like-minded friends to make a philanthropic decision, collective action makes a difference. Take a moment and consider the ways that you gave in 2021. Then, create a plan as to how you will share your Time, Talent, Treasure and Ties in 2022. To ensure that it happens, write it down and discuss your ideas with those closest to you!
