The Essay Prompt:
A weekly feature of The New York Times Magazine is a column by Randy Cohen called “The Ethicist,” in which people raise ethical questions to which Cohen provides answers. The question below is from the column that appeared on April 4, 2003.
At my high school, various clubs and organizations sponsor charity drives, asking students to bring in money, food, and clothing. Some teachers offer bonus points on tests and final averages as incentives to participate. Some parents believe that this sends a morally wrong message, undermining the value of charity as a selfless act. Is the exchange of donations for grades O.K.?
The practice of offering incentives for charitable acts is widespread, from school projects to fund drives by organizations such as public television stations, to federal income tax deductions for contributions to charities. In a well-written essay, develop a position on the ethics of offering incentives for charitable acts. Support your position with evidence from your reading, observation, and/or experience.
Directions to part two: Based on the rubric score your own essay.
At the end of your document add a short paragraph in which you provide the score you chose to give your essay. Provide an explanation of why you gave yourself that score; be sure to use the rubric as you list a minimum of three characteristics that your essay either contained or lacked.

Offering Incentives for Charitable Acts
The ethics of offering incentives for the charitable acts is something immoral that people need to avoid. Morality is compromised when people engage in the provision of the incentives in exchange for charity projects. Charitable work should be purely free. If a person wants to help another, that person should do it out of free will without having the drive of getting an incentive.
