In My Humble Opinion

IMG_9462

Dear Reader,

At this time of year we are all asked to donate to many different non-profit organizations or charities like the Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, JDRF, the ADA, the Sierra Club, the local food bank, etc.  Many of these we are extremely passionate about – my favorite being, Early Alert Canines (EAC).

Before donating, I ask you to please consider the impact your donation has on a small organization versus a large, well-established one. For example, a $2000 donation to EAC covers approximately 1% of our entire working budget (and provides 10% of the cost of a dog), where the same donation to one of the larger organizations is an unnoticeable fraction of a percent of operating or research costs.

In addition, many smaller non-profits cater to current needs and relief, and rely more upon individual donors than the larger organizations, which have greater access to government and corporate sponsorships and grants.

I ask you to take this into consideration when you make your gifts.

Sincerely,

Hilary

    What a great perspective from a fellow diabetic alert dog. Cool. EAC can do a lot with your donation.
