100 Words On: Donating to the Company Charity Drive

This is a guest post from Erin Baker who has several blogs including The Dog Ate My Wallet and, appropriately, 100 Words On. Check them both out when you get a chance!

The Holiday Giving Season is almost upon us. If your company sponsors a specific charity, the decision to give as an employee can be a tricky one. Is this an organization you might give to anyway? Is participating in the company charity drive one of those “intangibles” that might be taken into account when you try to move up the corporate ladder? Will donating get you something you want (like the opportunity to wear jeans)?

The bottom line: Donate only if you want to (for whatever reason). Otherwise, don’t let someone else tell you where your charity dollars should go.
