Charitable Trust Lists
Question: How can I freely/inexpensively promote an online memorial service setup by a charity?
Hi, I’ve been doing some (offline) promotional work for an online memorial service called www.muchloved.com that has been setup by a charitable trust (www.thedatatrust.org). Now I want to get the site listed on search engines but Dmoz (which I normally use) no longer seems to work and the charity don’t have the money to do pay per click advertising. Does anyone know a good directory or service thats either cheap or even free that will start getting them some visitors please. Its a beautiful site with noble aims and all the money goes either to the charity (which helps counsel bereaved people) or to perpetually hosting the memorial online. Please help. Thanks!
Answer: I would suggest you try prweb.com which is a very affordable press release service. this will get your word out a little bit and build links in to your website.
In addition, you may want to do a video and post it on youtube, google video, and dailymotion.com for free.
You can also use Jigadig.com's advertising. It's a free targeted search advertising system. All you need to do is get some users using their search engine and it will support you with free advertising.

Charitable Trust Education
Question: Can all charitable trusts in the world come together and decide everyone on this earth gets 2 times food ?
Is this feasible ? I know many rich charitable trusts who have different focuses and agenda. Some have very expensive plans for education, New inventions etc. But can they not come together and contribute to a simple humanitarian cause to ensure that no human being on this earth remains hungry ? What are your views ?
Answer: God Questions.
Think the amount of wastage of food in marriages and parties and even at home and hotels. Start preaching people to save food. If the leftovers can be given to poor and hungry that would be great.
Let us all decided not leave anything in our plates.

Giving To Charity And Taxes
Question: How much can I right off when giving to charity?
Ok lets say hypothetically that I gave 50% of my gross income to a charity last year. How much can I right off and not owe taxes on?
Answer: Depending on what you're giving and who you're giving it to, the limits range from 20% to 50% of your AGI. 50% is for total contributions. See IRS Publication 17, Chapter 24 or other IRS documents.
Obviously it is only legal to deduct what you actually gave. You can be asked by the IRS to prove that you actually made the contributions you claim.

Charitable Trust Status
When Kathy Miller decided to travel to Southern India with Projects Abroad in 1999, little did she realise how much it would change her life. Five years on, Kathyâ€™s charity, The Neem Tree Trust has gone from strength to strength.
After spending a month teaching near Madurai, Kathy was given the opportunity to spend time at The Society for the Care of the Handicapped where she was touched by the boys and their mutual respect and love for each other despite their situation. Most of the boys have suffered from polio and all come from very poor family backgrounds so Kathy decided to set up The Neem Tree Trust to help with the boysâ€™ education and to generally help to relieve child poverty in the Tirunelveli area.
On her return, Kathy, her husband Ken and the two other trustees â€“ John Hoskins and Patricia Kinzett worked hard to achieve charitable status for The Neem Tree Trust and were granted this in November 2003. In the last year alone they have raised Â£6,485 from starting a lottery club, Â£5,266 from sales of goods made by the boys themselves and over Â£800 from friend, Graham Dove who ran the Bath Half-Marathon in aid of the trust.
Kathy visits the boysâ€™ home at least once a year to meet up with the boys, to donate money and collect their crafts to sell back in the UK. This year she presented Dr Karuna Chelliah who runs the home with a cheque worth Â£8000 to pay for boysâ€™ corrective surgery, vocational training equipment, the creation of a sensory garden for the boys to play in and meet their families, a special oven to make body braces for the severely disabled boys and an educational trip to Kerala for the boys amongst other things.
The Neem Tree Trust has been so successful that Kathy and the trustees have decided to expand their support to St Lukeâ€™s Leprosy Hospital at Peikulam, by selling the ladiesâ€™ colourful woven baskets with all profits going back to the hospital.
If youâ€™d like to find out more about The Neem Tree Trust, buy products made by the boys, greetings cards designed by them or donate to this good cause then please visit the web-site at www.neemtreetrust.org.uk.
