If you were wealthy, would you contribute much to charity?

I'd contribute some I'm sure, probably to the two organizations I'm a contributing member of already - the Republican National Committee and the World Wildlife Fund.

I'd give some to some kids organization or something. A lot to science labs probably.
And it doesn't bother me when people don't contribute, it's their money. And I don't do anything for society in general right now, so, all good.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/03 - 4:51:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
I sure would. I wish I could more now, actually. I mostly just volunteer my time, though.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/03 - 5:59:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
hecks yeah i would.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/03 - 6:01:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I would.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/03 - 6:02:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would give a lot of money for charity... I really wouldn't have a need for all that money and I don't believe in letting my money sit in a bank until I die. By the time I die, I'd want to have all my money gone, and what better way than to give to charities? I would give a lot to endangered language funds, cultural funds, gay and lesbian funds, and those ones where you can help get wells and clean water to Africa.

I would definitely give away 10-20 percent of the money I earned (considering it is in the millions) if I was rich. I would support the orphanages in Russia and other soviet rupublics. There people are not as generous as here, this comes from never having any money for themselves. Probably kids in other parts of the world as well.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/03 - 7:25:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've already contributed to charities. 0_o or.. my dad has. I haven't had anything to do with it. blah.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/03 - 7:26:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
absolutely
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/03 - 7:38:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeah, i would.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 12/24/03 - 8:15:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
Mmhmm, I would contribute to demining charities, save the music, literacy programs, and various children's charities in Africa.

If I had money I'd contribute all of it to charities, I'd only keep what I actually needed to pay bills and live and pay off my family's debt.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/29/03 - 3:16:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
Definitly.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 1/7/04 - 3:17:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
Same here Kiki, espically to the RNC. I am not rich but there are a few charities that i do donate to. But you have to watch out for them because there are so many phony ones out there. If they seem to good to be true, they usually are phony.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 1/7/04 - 3:18:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
Check them out with the BBB before contributing.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 1/7/04 - 3:18:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
No way.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 1/7/04 - 3:23:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, I'd do good things with the money personally instead. I wouldn't be lazy and would make sure good was being done with it.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 1/7/04 - 3:25:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes but would be very careful who got the money. Some of the 'charities' are nothing but money making scams.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 1/30/04 - 7:05:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
the hiltons must die. evil!!!
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 2/1/04 - 1:00:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes I would. I don't know how much, but one of the charities would be the American Lung Association, as I have had severe asthma and allergies and asthma since I have been a small child.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 2/1/04 - 1:01:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not a cent. I'm a regular scrooge when it comes to money...
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 2/1/04 - 1:02:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I would contribute to medical science so there would be no need for charities.
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 2/27/04 - 10:55:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
hey! the Hiltons donate their "old" $3000 dresses (that they can ONLY wear once) to charity!
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Friday 4/16/04 - 11:52:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't care enough to donate.
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 4/19/04 - 4:41:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
No.

Is that mean-spirited? Well guess what, I don't beleive in letting others manage my interests.

I would research what I wanted, and I would give the money myself, not to a charity. I'd interview college students, face to face, and then fully fund their education if they rubbed me the right way.

But I would never let my funds be eaten by a mindless beurocracy. Thats not good business practice.
