When your finances are tight, it can be difficult to find the funds to donate to charity. But if you want to make the world a better place, you can still contribute without opening your wallet. Continue reading to learn five ways you can give to charity – and stay under budget!
Donate your time. Many charitable organizations operate with the help of volunteers. Volunteering your time is a commendable way to contribute to your community, without opening your wallet. For example, you could serve food at a local soup kitchen, spend quality time with residents at senior centers, and help out at your local animal rescue shelter.
Offer your skills. Do you have a special skill such as cooking, writing or event planning? You might consider offering your services at no cost! Many charities and nonprofits have specialized needs but can’t afford skilled staff.
Donate your things. Many charities will gratefully accept donated goods, such as clothes, shoes, furniture, and non-perishable foods. If you have items to get rid of, consider giving it to a good cause rather than discarding it.
Help to raise funds. There’s a variety of ways you can raise funds for charity. You can organize a neighborhood food and clothing drive, share your favorite charities or causes on social media, or encourage family and friends to participate in a sponsored walk. If you have caring people in your life – get together and make a difference!
