  • I suspect to campaigns, after all Dems don't give much to charity but they do love their politicians.
    All in all, I think I gave an equal amount this year

  • I'm guessing it was to political campaigns. Charity is usually an afterthought with the political minded.
    (In other words, if you are a politician or courting a politician, you may donate to look better not because you care)

  • IDK, but we gave WAY more to charity than we did to campaigns.  Although, I say that as a conservative living in an area represented by conservatives, so it's not like they needed my monetary support (the politicians - that is).

  • Lol- UpSheRises... go search the web, it's a well known fact that Conservatives are more likely to give to charities. The statistics support this year after year. This shouldn't come as a shock to you, nor does it deserve your rude response- it is how it is.

  • personal donations= TAX WRITE OFF!!!!! not so altruistic when one also benefits.


    OP- I'm not sure.

  • I'm going to say charitable organizations (national, local, churches, etc.)...because there are more of them than political candidates.
