A few days ago, my bank statement showed me that I’ve been making two recurring donations each month to the exact same social justice organization. With so much happening in the world, so many crises to defuse, and so many causes to support, I hadn’t even realized I’d set up these duplicate contributions.
I’m guessing I’m not the only one feeling a bit disorganized these days. We have resources (be they money, time, or skills) to contribute to the issues we care about. We know we want to help. Maybe we start with a Google search, or browsing through Facebook. Perhaps we find what we’re looking for, but chances are we wind up easily overwhelmed. We keep coming back to the same question: where do I begin? At your local Funding Information Network (FIN) location, you can start getting some answers.
