Millennials are more often associated with the penny-pinching $1 Venmo charge than with charitable giving. But in many of the Money Diaries we publish, right under Utilities and Spotify on the OP's list of monthly expenses is a line for donations. From Planned Parenthood to Patreon to ASPCA, millennial women are giving — regardless of how much money they make — to the causes and charities they care about.
Philanthropy isn't a word reserved just for multimillionaires. Whether you factor in donations as an automated line item in your budget or give on a one-off basis in response to whatever incendiary thing the president tweeted that morning, you're a philanthropist. And talking about philanthropy — and how to adjust your spending to make room for it — can empower more people to do it, too.
