Donating to charity has many benefits that impact different people. It can help a family in need, be rewarding and fun, and also offer financial benefits. An important thing to remember when donating to charity, is not just throwing money at whatever charity comes first. Dr. J.T. Dock Houk, founder of the National Heritage Foundation, provides simple tips to go about giving.
First, budgeting money correctly for a charity that is important to you or means something to you is important. When it comes time to give, you will be inspired to help out a cause that you really care about. Narrow down the organization to something you feel will experience the greatest impact of your gift. Also, finding an organization that has the same goals as you can be beneficial, especially if they have a program where they match donations. If your company matches donations, this can greatly increase the impact of your contribution, making the gift felt on an even larger scale.
When considering the benefits you will experience, make sure that all the charities are proper 501(c)3 organizations, meaning that they are registered with the IRS as tax-exempt organizations. If they are not, then your contribution won’t be tax-deductible. A last tip for donating to charity that Dr. J.T. Houk provides is to get a feel for how the charity will use your contribution or what they spend donations on. Any charitable donation will always be appreciated, no matter how large or small the contribution.
