Certainly the easiest way to budget for anything is to have it deducted directly from your paycheck. That way, you never have to give it a second thought, so why not take that mentality into giving to charitable organizations like the Love Fund for Children?
Some Kansas City employers might even match funds so that you can maximize your support. Your human resources department can answer that for you. Payroll deduction is also a convenient way to track your donations so that you can deduct them from your income tax.
If budgeting is tight, consider participating in fundraisers or making small sacrifices to free up cash. Keep an envelope in your car and when you decide to skip that latte in the morning, and put the money you saved in the envelope. Put the discount you got on that oil change into the envelope, too. Before you know it, there will be a sizable amount available for donations.
But helping local kids in Missouri and Kansas is not limited to the cash you can provide. The Love Fund League is a generous group of volunteers who contribute time, as well as money, to assist local children when funding is not otherwise available.
