Last year my husband and I inherited a big chunk of money and we didn’t tell our closest friends. We are now set financially and have taken the time to create a long term financial plan. We also still work and live in the same house with no plans to move. Our kids love where we are and we don’t want to leave. We’ve given money to our families and to charitable organizations and now we’ve been thinking that we want to gift some of the money to friends. We both love the idea of helping them, but we’re not sure if it’s a good idea – that whole thing about mixing friendship and money. We’re worried about how they will react when they find out we’ve been keeping this news from them, and also worry they may be offended that we’re offering them money.
Is this the worst idea ever? Do we gift the money – and if we do – what is the best way to go about it? Decisions, decisions in Waterloo
