No matter where I am in life, I pledge to use my non-monetary resources including my network and my volunteer time, to aid causes important to me. By the time I have an income of $40,000 dollars or more I plan on giving away 5% of my income to a worthy cause. By the time I have a family and am earning a combined income of $100,000 or more, I plan to give up to 15% of my income. When I die I plan to give half of my cash assets to a worthy cause identified over my life time, while the other half goes to my children in a safe and non-destructive trust fund plan.
