I give monthly to Hillel for many reasons. First off, it's a lot easier for me to give a little steadily throughout the year than to give a large sum of money once a year. I can plan giving into my budget so that it doesn't take a large chunk out of my bank account once a year. I also know that organizations like Hillel love to have monthly donations because it helps them plan their activities knowing they will have a steady stream of revenue coming in. Think of it like would you rather have a paycheck you get twice a month, or have a much smaller chance of getting a larger sum of money? I know I would rather have the steady paycheck for peace of mind!
I hope reading this helped you see why I give to Hillel and has inspired you to give back too!
