"The more politically divided we get in our communities, the more we're going to see consequences of that spill over into other facets of life, including our charitable giving," said Rob Christensen, associate professor of public management at BYU.

No, this is good. Why in the HOLY HELL should you VOLUNTARILY support causes you don't support? It's logically contradictory and crazy. At the end of the article the more important point emerges:
Researchers believe the findings are increasingly important as major shifts in political competition and philanthropy continue. Other research has shown, for example, that younger generations are giving less to institutional charities (think United Way) and more to charitable causes that are more closely connected to them (GoFundMe for a social-media friend).The growth of refined crowdfunding is the BEST development of modern times. When you can see a proposal or project specifically and give specifically, you know exactly what you're supporting. This is equally true for businesslike crowdfunding where a profit is anticipated. Crowdfunding is Sharia. Crowdfunding is NATURAL LAW. Mass funding with fungible money is GLOBALIST. Crowdfunding is LOCALIST and MODULAR by definition.= = = = = Continued in next item.
