Go Green, Donate your Stuff and Save on Taxes 9/16/2010 9:02:22 AM

Whether you're replacing your office windows or swapping out your office furniture for something new, always check to see if there is a charity that needs your stuff. Not only do you get the satisfaction of knowing it's not just rotting away in the dump and increasing the load on our overcrowded landfills; but it's going to help local charities repair homes, furnish non-profit offices, and other tasks.

loset or remodeling your office, it pays to skip the dumpster and donate as much as you can. There's an incremental benefit of donating your decluttering and remodeling castoffs. When they upgraded a front door they donated the old one to a local charity.

There are lots of reasons to donate to charity, too, whether you give used stuff, money or some of your valuable time. You can receive tax breaks, help out a cause that is special to you or simply feel good about giving.

Really, though, there’s more to giving than just give away your junk, mailing in a check or accumulating a set number of hours every week. You enjoy a brief sense of self-satisfaction, but then what? You may find that the most valuable charitable contribution is your sincere interest in the beneficiary. Truly getting involved with a cause can make your donation all the more worthwhile and enlighten you as to how you can make a greater impact.
