This week, I've been doing our family's annual charitable giving (here's a guide to some of the charities we support), a long process that involves using Charity Navigator to verify that the groups we support are still spending money effectively, figuring out how much to give, and then submitting the receipts to my wife's employer for donation-matching.
I was a little late to my giving this year, and so I was delighted to be reminded that EFF (always my biggest check!) had extended its "Power Up" donation matching, through which major donors double the individual donations the org brings in.
This has been a hell of a year for EFF — and for the issues it works on. Having my donation go twice as far was a hell of pleasant surprise and really made my week!
