What: Find out how much you can you give to others without risking your savings. The answer may surprise you.

The best parts: Type in your gross income and net investment assets, and Newtithing calculates what you can afford to donate to charity while still seeing your wealth rise faster than inflation. Newtithing estimates that 14 million Americans with adjusted gross incomes of $50,000 to $74,999 and $118,000 in investment assets could increase their annual giving by 21 percent, from $1,322 to $1,600 per person.

The wealthiest Americans can afford to give 10 times more. The group suggests that Americans could donate an additional $242 billion in 1999 without impairing their net worth.

What you should know: Newtithing Group is a philanthropic research organization committed to increasing charitable giving, personal fulfillment, and the productivity of donations to the nonprofit sector.
