They have always told me that buying a timeshare at these sales events is a bad idea because of the inflated upfront cost and perpetual maintenance and exchange fees the timeshare companies pile on. It is also quite difficult to sell a timeshare you no longer want because there is usually a giant supply of timeshares on the market. If you do want to get rid of a money sucking timeshare, donating it may be the most economical option.</p> <p>When you donate your timeshare, you can write off the value of the timeshare on your taxes and get a tax deduction. This <a href="http://donateforacause.org/donate_timeshare_faq/" target="_blank">detailed FAQ at Donate for a Cause</a> describes the process. It is up to you to decide the fair value of your property and you will be free from that unwanted timeshare without too many worries. You do need to be able to itemize to take advantage of donations and you should check the IRS&#39;s rules about non-cash donations. Currently any non-cash donation worth over $5000 need to be verified with a written appraisal.</p> <p>It is not always true that the tax deduction you receive will be greater than the price you can get for a timeshare on the open market. This really depends on your tax rate and the value of your timeshare, but you definitely save quite a bit of time and energy by just giving the property away. The cost of marketing your timeshare can be quite high because there is so much competition on the market. If you hire a company that helps you list your timeshare, you are usually required to pay a upfront fee that could be quite high. Generally the companies that work for a flat fee do not care how much your timeshare sells for and there are many listings on eBay that are put out by these companies that unload timeshares for as low as a dollar.</p> <p>Finally, another bonus to donating your unwanted timeshare is that you will be helping someone in need. It is truly a win win situation for everyone involved. The charity gets cash to help people, the buyer of your timeshare gets a discount, and you will no longer have to deal with maintenance fees. If you are not sure where to start, <a href="http://donateforacause.org/" target="_blank">Donate for a Cause </a> is a charity specializing in timeshares and they contribute to a variety of charities. It is also possible that your favorite charities accept timeshares as donations and you can find out by calling or checking out their websites.</p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/xin-lu">Xin Lu</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/why-you-should-donate-a-blood-sucking-timeshare">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.

My train of thought, fortunately, is easy to track.</p> <p>I give a good deal of money to charity every year, enough so that the monetary amount actually affects my tax returns (in a good way). I was just thinking about all of the places that I give to, and since some people started posting other charities in the last blog post, I thought I&#39;d just out and out ask: who do you give to?</p> <p>Because I&#39;m really dig critters, be they fuzzy or bald, small or huge, I give to the following organizations on a regular basis:</p> <p><a href="http://www.rollingdogranch.org/">Rolling Dog Ranch and Sanctuary</a> is a great place and fantastic organization where disabled animals go to live out their days, or even find new homes! <strong>Warning!</strong> If you like animals, or have a functioning heart, do not visit this site until you are somewhere in which you can wipe away tears. Not that I&#39;m the crying type, no sir. I&#39;m pounding my chest in an aggressive manner as we speak. No, I&#39;m worried about you sissy types who cry easily... especially if you read the story about <a href="http://www.rollingdogranch.org/dogs/spirit.html">Spirit</a> ...the ... wonderdog (breaks down sobbing).</p> <p><a href="http://www.elephants.com/">The Elephant Sanctuary</a> is well-known, and damn, if elephants just aren&#39;t as cool as can be.</p> <p><a href="http://www.hsus.org/">The Humane Society of the United States</a> is activist enough for me to feel like they&#39;re really DOING something, but without being obnoxious, like PETA.

I do sincerely believe this, as much as I like receiving. And I <strong>do</strong> like <a href="http://www.woot.com/">getting stuff</a>.</p> <p>You know that old saying about giving a man a fish, and he&#39;ll eat for a day... but teach him how to fish, and he&#39;ll end up going to cooking school and opening a swanky restaurant downtown that you won&#39;t be able to get reservations to, despite the fact that you taught him, in painstaking detail, how to tie flies when he was down and out?</p> <p>I bring this up because of... livestock. My mom likes to donate to charities that work in Third World countries, and a recent charitable phenomenon is a Goat Gift Pack (or sheep, or <a href="http://www.heifer.org/site/pp.asp?c=edJRKQNiFiG&amp;b=201452">cows</a>, pigs, even <a href="http://www.kanoute.com/sendagift.htm">fowl</a>) for poor families that have no source of income. It&#39;s sort of a microfinance concept, that a small loan or donation put towards livelihood, rather than pure survival, is more beneficial to a poor family than, say, a bag of rice. Animals produce milk, which can be consumed and sold for profit. It&#39;s something that seems to be very popular right now in the giving world.</p> <p>I&#39;m a tad skeptical about the price tags, however. For instance, my mom recently paid $300 to a well-known religious organization to give a pair of sheep to a poor family in India. $300? I don&#39;t think a pair of sheep cost that much in the U.S., and we <strong>should</strong> have pricey sheep. I&#39;m wary of just how much money is being skimmed off the top for these organizations. I know that there are lots of administrative costs, but we&#39;re talking about a country in which you can get a full, satisfying meal for under a dollar.</p> <p>I&#39;m not sure how to organize an investigation of whether or not Mom got ripped off, so I&#39;ll just caution anyone else who was thinking of paying $300 for livestock to shop around a bit. In my mother&#39;s case, she personally corresponds with thsi family, so I think she felt stuck in using her chosen organization to give them help.</p> <p>By the way, Slate.com ran a good article on the <a href="http://www.slate.com/id/2161797/">best microfinance organizations</a> to donate to. I found it informative, anyway.</p> <p class="heading">Give without really giving</p> <p class="sub-heading"><strong><img src="http://wisebread.killeracesmedia.netdna-cdn.com/files/fruganomics/wisebread_imce/feedhungry.gif" alt=" " width="244" height="47" />Link to Give </strong></p> <p><a href="http://www.greatergood.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/GreaterGood">Greater Good</a> runs several web sites that raise money to combat hunger, disease, and animal abuse. Greater Good is a for-profit company, but they give a portion of their profits to charity. They also started the click-to-give idea a while ago, before Google got involved, in which revenue provided by ad clicks was donated to dedicated charities. The premise is that you can visit any of the Greater Good sites once every 24 hours, and click once on an ad, which usually says something like &quot;Click Here to Feed the Hungry&quot;. The revenue generated by that click goes entirely to charity.</p> <p>I should add that Greater Good has a <a href="https://shop.thehungersite.com/store/item.do?itemId=26450&amp;siteId=220&amp;sourceId=220&amp;sourceClass=StoreSearch&amp;index=1">good price on a pair of goats</a> for Rwandan families, too.</p> <p><a href="http://www.urbanmonk.net/50/blog-apocalypse-2-minutes-from-you-500-to-charity-from-me/"><img src="http://wisebread.killeracesmedia.netdna-cdn.com/files/fruganomics/wisebread_imce/apoc.gif" alt=" " width="125" height="170" /></a></p> <p><a href="http://www.urbanmonk.net/50/blog-apocalypse-2-minutes-from-you-500-to-charity-from-me/">Urban Monk</a> is donating $500 from ad revenue to charity, so I&#39;m linking to him in hopes that he gets all the ad revenue necessary to write that check ASAP.
