We All Are Equal
Organized by: DeAndre Kinney
Americans have been contributing to charitable organizations for more than 200 years. According to the National Philanthropic Trust, as of 2007 people donated over $250 billion annually to help others. Fundraising offers many donors personal satisfaction, even though their first motive may be a tax write-off. In addition to individual contributors, hundreds of companies every year host fundraising events for various causes. Fundraising events may include consignment sales, golf events, and theater offerings.
