Marin is also generous. A new Marin Community Foundation study concluded that “giving and volunteerism is thriving” here. Some examples:
• 92 percent of Marin residents either volunteered or donated money in the last year.
• 86 percent of households made charitable contributions, beyond the national average of 70 percent.
• Marin households gave an average of 2.3 percent of income to charity, a touch more than the national average of 2.2 percent.
There is nothing like the feeling of giving back, and I will donate $ to for every transaction I do.
These are my favorite foundations that I believe in and support.
