Paying it Forward
Hello! I'm writing today to ask for your help on choosing a charity to support with the proceeds from my online course. I will be donating a portion of the revenue from the April launch of my Teaching Your Passion™ course. I am excited about helping others and paying it forward!
Help Me Choose a Charity
I'd love to hear your suggestions on places/people to support. I've done a lot of research and am leaning heavily toward Kiva. Kiva is a 501(c)3 U.S. nonprofit that manages small loans in the amount of $25 and up. The entire amount of the loan goes to the intended recipient. They cover operating costs through optional donations, separate from the loans. After the loans are repaid (they have a nearly 97% repayment rate!) the hope is that you will loan the amount again, to another individual or group.
Past Performance Inspires Confidence
My family and I have been loaning through Kiva since 2016. We've been very glad to see all but one of our loans repaid, and we keep re-loaning.
Kiva's Filters Make Searching Easy
I like the way their site is set up with many filters. I've been looking at the Education listings:
Showing how close someone is to his/her goal is a neat touch, isn't it? It makes me want to help out the people who are close! Here's a look at the Arts listings:
What Charity Do You Recommend?
Won't you help me choose a charity? Even though I am obviously excited about Kiva, I'd love to hear what charities you recommend. I'll be sharing revenue from all of my future courses, and I am happy to build up a list of worthy causes! Please leave your suggestions in the Comments below. Thanks!
