Does your employer have charitable matching?

Unfortunately, nope. I do donate to certain organizations but, like this article gets into, how much is “stupid” to donate? I feel like I donate pretty frivolously when people ask — some months more than my monthly grocery bill, for example — but still much less than I save.

Without getting into too much detail, someone in my town won the lottery, donated tens of millions to a local organization, and then had some bad investments and has very little money now. That’s an extreme example but an exaggerated version of what I’m afraid of!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
