[This is an unfinished blog post attempting to split up and name some earning to give styles based on the budgeting breakdown in Funnel Budgeting.]
Lumpers vs Tricklers
Lumpers give at the end of the year and tricklers give monthly. These styles lie on the general frequency dimension. Extremes include a save-and-bequest model on the lumper side and Bitcoin transaction stream on the trickler side.
Budgeters vs Surplusers
Budgeters give from their budget. Surplusters give from their unbudgeted surplus money. A Fractional Surpluser breaks their surplus money into targets and then puts their money into each target at a specific fraction, per target. A Full Surpluser has charity as their only target, but other options would be 50/50 charity/savings, or 20/40/40 charity/travel/savings.
I'm undecided on the appropriate giving frequency but lean towards monthly, am currently budgeting but will transition to surplus giving, and am leaning towards keeping travel and savings in my budget and so would be giving everything over a threshold.
So in 2014 I'll likely be a Fully Surplusing Trickler wrt E2G.
