  • How will the impending fiscal cliff affect donors and charities?A Wider Circle
  • Why does it benefit donors and charities to give at this time of year specifically?
  • Is it better to give 10 smaller donations or 3 larger ones?
  • When choosing which charities to donate to, what measures should donors look at to determine how accountable a charity is and how effectively that charity will use the donation?

Do those questions sound familiar? You’re not alone, those are the questions many people are asking at this time as they decide who to support and how much to donate. 

This week on the Home & Family Finance Radio show, Mark Bergel, Ph.D., Founder and Executive Director of A Wider Circle, a member of America’s Charities, had the opportunity to answer those questions and discuss his organization’s work with radio host Paul Berry.
