  •  Dont give it away (9+ / 0-)

    That's the short sighted masturbatory thing to do. Feels good but has less impact.

    Honestly you can do far far more good by keeping it and ,growing and using it over years.

    A problem with members of the democratic liberal front is that they often give up power / do not seek it out.

    Honestly when the republicans strive to become CEO's and corporate leaders and the democratic base is selling home made crafts on the side of the street. There is a reason why democrats get run over time and time again.

    •  You can set up perpetual scholarships and stuff (9+ / 0-)

      like that ... the giving keeps on long after you are gone.

        of any kind you would be surprised at what you can do with it.

        If you hold off giving away a million dollars today , 5 years from now you can give away 2 million and still have money left over.

        That's the idea.  By smart management of wealth you can make a far greater difference than just by giving it away. Even by a "perpetual scholarship" it short sighted unless you are dying and have no relatives of worth.  You can get much much better returns yourself than via some some scholarship fund. (They usually don't get very high returns on their investments)
