As we are talking with people, we are finding that it can be hard sometimes to just sit around and watch the health and economic events unfold with no visible way to help. While our government tries to pull together relief for those who most need it, the need for support grows. We thought you might find it helpful it you knew of some places where you can donate and make a difference now. We contacted our friends at ImpactAssets, the provider of the donor advised fund for many of our clients, to see who they recommended as the best places to have an impact NOW. Here is the list that they sent us: http://impactassets.org/support-those-impacted-by-coronavirus.
- Donate directly to these charities on your own.
- Use your existing donor advised fund (even if it isn’t ImpactAssets) to make a “grant” to one of these organizations.
- Send part of your 2020 Required Minimum Distribution directly from your IRA to one of these charities.
Omega has its own donor advised fund and we plan to make a donation to one of the charities on the linked list.
Sometimes it can be hard to sit by and do nothing. Today, you CAN do something that will help others.
Take care, stay safe!
