Duke has a culture of philanthropy—and that’s awesome. You can’t walk across the Bryan Center Plaza without being flagged by numerous student groups fundraising for various charities. And the closer I get to graduating, the more subliminal messages I get from Duke trying to pressure me into giving back to the university. #ForeverDuke! Assuming I’m lucky enough to have money to give back, how do I decide where my money should go? At the end of the day, I have a finite amount of money I can donate, so there are obvious tradeoffs: a dollar I give to Charity A is one less dollar I could give to Charity B. And I’m only talking about this in context of donation, but I face a similar problem if I want to have a large social impact with my career.
