How Much Should You Donate?

Donations come in all shapes and sizes, and are made for all different reasons. Whether you want to help people, animals, the planet, or something completely different, your donations matter. But, if donation size is causing you stress, it’s important to take a handful of factors into consideration. Keep these points in mind so that you can donate comfortably to the charity of your choice.

Don’t Overdo It

Whatever amount you donate, make sure that you aren’t putting a financial burden on yourself. Of course it’s important to support a cause and help others, but harming yourself and your financial prospects in the process means you’ll have a harder time supporting causes in the future. Before making a monetary donation, be sure that you have the resources to do so. Otherwise, it might behoove you to try volunteering or a non-monetary type of charity work. .

Look Over Your Budget

If you think you can afford to donate, incorporate that cost into your monthly budget. Make sure that you cover your necessities and save some money before writing that check. You don’t want to donate too much money, and you also don’t want to donate when you don’t have the wiggle room to do so.
