Your Secret Donor Hates You
I have a friend named Tim. He’s an investment banker in Manhattan, makes a ton of money and likes to give to those who are less fortunate than himself.
Tim loves the concept of charity. Unfortunately, after 15 years of writing checks to New York’s nonprofit organizations, Tim hates charities.
He’s tired of having his name sold to groups similar to the one to which he donated. He’s tired of getting phone calls on his private line from charities he’s never heard of. And he’s tired of writing a healthy check to a nonprofit, only to get a solicitation letter from it a mere month later.
