In this issue of our newsletter, we are continuing with the examination of how to balance our personal expenditures and savings goals with Peter Singer’s suggestion that “if it is in our power to prevent something very bad from happening without thereby sacrificing anything else morally significant, we ought, morally, to do it.”

In the most recent newsletter, I suggested that experiencing guilt is a counterproductive way of increasing charitable giving. Afterward I received a very thoughtful response from Frank Martin, one of our subscribers, which I wanted to share with you. In his response, Frank takes issue with my argument and considers how we might harness our guilt (which Frank cleverly refers to as “dis-ease”) to do more good — a practice he calls “bitter champagne.”

I want to thank Frank for writing in and sharing his thoughts. And I hope that more subscribers will share their thoughts on this and other important topics.

Of course, one thing that Frank and I absolutely agree on is that we should all be improving our philanthropic behavior by giving more effectively and more generously. There is no better time to start than right now!

Stock Donations for Good

Donating stock is a powerful way to make an impact. The stock market has grown dramatically in the last year. Donating stocks today ensures you can take advantage of these highs, and give the meaningful gift you desire to help alleviate extreme poverty. 


By donating stock rather than selling it, you will avoid paying a capital gains tax and if you donate a long-term holding and itemize deductions, you can also take a charitable deduction for the entire donation. 

Please reach out to Angela Jones for more information.
