GIVING ANONYMOUSLY

There are several reasons why I like this concept of giving anonymously.
1. You can help whoever you want.
2. The money goes exactly to who you want it to.
3. It saves you and your recipient the embarrassment of the transaction. I don't know about you, but it's hard for me to accept charity and it's made worse by accepting a handout from someone I know.
4. It keeps you anonymous, so that your recipient won't expect you to continue to give more than you can.

Giving Anonymously began in 2005. Their motto is they aren't the charity, you are. Their books are open to the IRS so be aware of the rules that apply to giving.
