Who should you give to?
Start closest to you – who has helped your family, or loved one? These questions might jar your memories – and help open your wallet…
Did your parents or grandparents benefit from Meals on Wheels – https://www.rimeals.org
Was it the Providence Animal Rescue League where you got your fine feline? – https://www.parl.org/
Did you college give you a scholarship or financial aid – just when you needed it – and the direction of your life totally changed?
Did a disease take a loved one too soon? Or are you suffering from one now and your gift might make the biggest difference in research?
Did you ever visit a Food Bank or Soup Kitchen? – https://rifoodbank.org/
Is your favorite performing arts group dark because of COVID? Think Trinity, Festival Ballet; many art galleries are non-profit; community theatre, etc.
And…if you can’t think of any agency or group, how about sending a gift to the family you know who could use it at this time of year? Charity doesn’t need to be an IRS certified organization – most of us don’t give at the level where charitable deductions are the reason why we’re giving – so think of the individual – someone for whom your gift will make a world of difference.
