Giving Carnival: Motivation

This Month’s Giving Carnival is about what motivates giving? Why do donors give money away? You can see my thoughts in my posting, What Motivates Giving. We have a number of wonderful articles from bloggers on this topic this month so make sure to check out their site and possibly leave a comment.

Some other great articles about giving: Seeking Grant Money Today’s, What Motiviates Giving?; Donor Power Blog’s, How to have Kiva’s problem; Nonprofit Leadership Innovation and Change’s, What Motivates Giving?; Dollar Philanthropy’s, Excitement in the Inbox; Look to the Stars’, Editorial: What Motivates Giving? Thanks for reading. If you want to be on a list to receive updates about the next Giving Carnival send me an email at and I will add you to the list.
