Imagine having a personal giving planner with you 24/7. While most individuals have areas of passion, giving can be reactive and deviate from goals and intent. “Responsive” giving, such as donations to disaster relief or requests by family and friends, can make plans more difficult to execute and benchmark. We already have the technology to help us to find a romantic match, get a ride, and order goods to our doorsteps.
Research shows that people with a plan pay down debt three times faster than those without one and contribute 41% more on average to retirement accounts. Can we expect similar positive results if people could easily budget for and benchmark their charitable giving?
