40. Change 'may' to 'will' and you have something

The most popular reason to give huge money to a charity is for the donation's tax treatment. (We're not talking about a hundred to the church or $250 to your alma mater, we're talking endowing scholarships and building hospital wings--donations that have more than one comma in them.) These guys are NOT going to continue donating tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands if they can't write most of it off.

In a sad number of cases, a rich man is a person who would rather give $1,000,000 to a charity than $1000 to the government.
