Have money, want to donate: How best to achieve our goals?

Some family members and I have money that we would like to pool together to support a shared, lifelong value: the promotion of animal welfare. At least for the near-future, we have ruled out starting our own charity and are, thus, more interested in giving sizeable financial support to existing charities. But what is the best means of doing this that would also achieve some of our other aims? [more inside]

Healthy ways of working with financial imbalances in relationships?

I grew up in a lower-middle-class family. Through a combination of hard work, opportunity and luck, I find myself in my 30's with a very decent net worth. It's enough to allow me to feel very secure about retirement, job/career changes, health issues, supporting family, etc. and this security is probably the most important aspect of money to me. For me, money means security, safety, freedom. I maintain a very middle-class lifestyle, continue to work full-time and save at a reasonable rate. I've started to realize how much this factors into my thinking about long term relationships, especially marriage (and its attendant family joining) and financial co-mingling, and am looking for some perspectives on positive ways of managing these kinds of issues.
