Self-Test: Should You Start Your Own Charitable Savings Account?

The answer is yes if...

>> You would like to budget your giving, centralize it in one place, and have the tax documentation done for you.

>> You would like to take a tax deduction in the year you make your gift but decide later which charities to recommend to receive the money.

>> You would like to make giving a family tradition.

>> You would like to start a fund for a specific purpose and make it possible for more than one person to donate and receive tax deductions -- such as a memorial fund for a loved one.
