Taxes and Philanthropists
I don’t think donors really care about tax breaks.
I think most philanthropists care about supporting a cause, investing in their community, and making the world a better place.
It’s just a hunch.
Seth Godin reinforces my hunch when he writes about Charity Auctions: “The goal of a non-profit seeking money needs to be to create an environment in which the community congratulates itself on overpaying.”
