If you came into a large amount of money and wanted to do some good with it, would you donate it to exisiting charities, or form your own charity so the money goes where you want it?

Set up my own, so I would know where it's going.

If you know a bit about nonprofits and NGO's you can save yourself the time and trouble of setting one up by just giving to ones that are already in existence.

The only reason I would ever set up my own would be if I had a really breakthrough idea for one that didn't exist yet and I saw a great need for it.

I actually thought of one once. It would be really cool to form a watchdog group that found out how much money major corporations paid men for doing a job and then compared it to how much they pay women for doing the same job. We could publish the results, and even give an annual award to whatever companies pay really fairly. I think men tend to get paid a lot more than women in the corporate world for the same kind of job. And there isn't really anyone keeping tabs on that right now. You wouldn't really need to come into a large amount of money for that though.

i would give it to st. jude's children's hospital in memphis. i give money to them already. i think it's important to know about the charity you give your money to so you know it does good. i've visited st. jude on several occasions and i know that they are a great organization so i gladly give to them. making your own organization requires so much attention to detail and paperwork. it takes a very special person that can do all of that solely for the betterment of others and to appropriate money effectively.

I'd start my own charity. That way I know for myself where the money is going.

I would set up my own and cooperate with other charities. Or I would give it to the World Wildlife Fund or Greenpeace.

P.S.: There are a lot more female assassins than male assassins, though I suppose male assassins still get paid more. Just as emitchell said, this is how it works in our world.

I would donate money to an existing charity, but I would volunteer at it so I could have a better sense of where the money goes to and how it is used.

I would give it to a charity that was already existing and ask about if I had a choice where it went or not. But I don't really mind who uses it, as long as it's helping someone less fortunate.
