What is a charitable donation, and how does it work?
Charity gifts are when someone gives money or property to a worthy cause. Charitable contributions can be in the form of cash, goods and services, stocks/shares, and real estate.
Charities help people in need; they may do this through direct service provision (e.g., feeding the homeless, supporting the elderly) or through research (e.g., cancer research, autism research).
How to make a charitable donation?
There are ways that you can give money and property without facing any tax implications. These include donating securities like stocks/shares, real estate, life insurance policies, bequeathing your assets in your will, and donating cash.
Types of donations
Different types of charities accept donations, including community-based groups (e.g., local food banks), religious organizations (e.g., churches, mosques), international aid agencies, environmental/conservation projects (World Wildlife Fund). Additional charity donations include monetary gifts, household goods (e.g., clothing), food and drink, flexible giving accounts/donor-advised funds.
How to find the right charity for your values
There are many ways that you can find the right charity for you and your values; these include: doing research online (e.g., Google, Yahoo), reviewing websites like CharityNavigator, reading blogs, an article about charities (this post!), finding a co-worker who is interested in donating to the exact cause as yourself.
