On #GivingTuesday, the Possibilities Endless, the Impact Great

New York, N.Y. Are you suffering from #GivingTuesday fatigue yet? The needs truly are endless, yet each and every gift, whether to animal care or reproductive rights, goes so far to make the world a better place.

GivingTuesdayHere 600

Many of you have asked for how to give money to Orphans International Worldwide (OIWW) or The J. Luce Foundation. Contributions may be made online:

Or you can mail a check to 540 Main Street #418, New York, N.Y. 10044. Some prefer to give $83.33 per month. Both organizations are I.R.S. 501(c)3 N.Y.S. corporations and gifts are 100% tax-deductible.

Of particular interest may be our Hellenic Fund for assisting children and youth, both Greek and migrant, in Greece, and our Bauer Fund for mental illness and intellectual disabilities.

Please note that the J. Luce Foundation supports a host of other organizations that you should also consider. I personally recommend the following twelve tax-deductible possibilities:

  1. Battery Dance Company
  2. Fountain House
  3. Friends Without a Border
  4. Habitat for Humanity
  5. Legacy High School
  6. Marietta College McDonough Leadership
  7. Marietta College Pioneer Pipeline
  8. National Meningitis Assoc.
  9. New York on Tech
  10. Operation Respect
  11. Osborne Association
  12. Roosevelt Island Visual Artists Assoc.

After #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday, let’s remember the least fortunate among us and give generously because it’s the right thing to do, because we choose to be impactful, and because the tax year ends in thirty days!
