    You’re not just donating money or investing your time, but helping others in need or contributing in bringing a positive change in the society. It makes you feel happier, brings a sense of responsibility and gives you inner satisfaction.

  2. Every donation counts

  3. Teach your children the importance of giving
    It’s vital to teach your children the importance of helping others or taking care of others at an early age. Take your children with you when you donate to any charity or nonprofit. This will help them to know the importance of generosity naturally and will follow your footsteps once they grow up.

  4. Get a Tax Deduction
    When you make a donation to any UK registered charity or nonprofit, you can be eligible for tax relief whether you are an individual or a limited company.

  5. Strengthen your personal values
    When you donate for a specific case that you personally care about by considering it as your moral duty, it further helps in strengthening your personal values, beliefs and principles.

  6. Stay Informed
    Before making a donation to any nonprofit or charity, you do active research on what cause you like to support, which organisation is the right fit to achieve this, what factors can affect the social cause etc. In the process, you come across new challenges, perspectives, opinions and solutions which you were previously unaware of. This makes you more educated and well-informed about the social cause you care for.

  7. Encouraging your friends and family
    When you start donating for a cause, it inspires your family and friends to do their part as an individual or as a group together allowing to make a bigger and positive change.

  8. Build Social Connections
    As you start donating to any charity / nonprofit of your choice, you also get an opportunity to meet and network with several like-minded people, charity leaders, and other donors.

  9. Contribute by giving, if not as Volunteer
    Many of us wish to volunteer for any nonprofit or charity. Because of your busy schedule, you are unable to give required time. Making small donations at regular intervals can be an alternative to support cause of your choice.
