A healthy financial life—not being weighed down by debt or an unbalanced budget—means you can be more generous with your money.
Pro tip: If student loan debt is bogging you down, consider student loan refinancing options which can help you get out of debt faster with lower monthly payments.
Find organizations or causes that you and/or your spouse care about. Instead of maxing out the budget with donations, use your time and talents to contribute. Bonus, studies show that spending time volunteering boosts happiness and strengthens empathy.
Pro tip: Are you interested in more ways to grow closer with your spouse (and improve your finances)? Check out a Better Halves Workshop, where you explore marriage and money in a whole new light.
Get more support and resources behind your cause for greater impact. Also, remember that giving isn’t just about money; time and talents can also make a difference. Take advantage of employer charity match programs. Some companies will match whatever amount you raise, doubling your impact.
