Charitable Giving with was started by Steven Paletta who won a contest on Oprah's Big Give.  He was given a sizable amount of cash ($1,000,000) and the only condition was that he use it to help someone else.  His solution was to start up an organization called Give Back where individuals such as you and I can start up our own foundations and donate money to the organizations we want to support.  

There is a long list of non-profit organizations for you to choose from.  They are all in good standing with the IRS and there is a handy page for each that shows how many supporters they have and how much has been donated.  

To start your own foundation click here: Give Back.  There are 3 ways to build your foundation:
1. Get $5 today when you create your foundation.
2. Make a donation using your CC and receive a tax deduction.
3. Shop 400+ retailers and earn charitable dollars.

100% of GiveBack donations go to the charities you support.

I chose the National Fibromyalgia Association which is a group dedicated to developing and executing programs to improve the quality of life for people with Fibromyalgia.  Right now, when you sign up you receive $5 with your account to start you off and when it comes time for taxes all of your charitable donations are on one page - just print it and go.

What's your Mission?  

Right now, there is a special opportunity for you when you start up your foundation: 

Each week MISSION Co-Founders Steve Nash & Serena Williams will choose one story and award that Member's foundation $1000.  So, Is there a charity that has extra meaning to you or your family? What are you doing to help change the world?  Start up YOUR foundation today and tell us about it!
