    Why  to donate money?

    1 - Pleasure Life Experience

    Donating money simply makes you feel better, which is something we can all benefit from.

    2 - Help Others in Need

    We do not live in a perfect world, and there's never going to be a perfect time to give—but there are always people out there in need of help. Whether interest rates are rising, the economy is in the doldrums, or even if you're experiencing financial difficulties of your own, the reality is that when you donate your money, you help others who need it.

    3 - Get a Tax Deduction

    You can write off donations on your tax return. Certain restrictions do apply, though. Donating your cash is a great way to reduce the amount of money taxes you pay to your administration.

    4 - Networking

    When you donate money to charity, you create opportunities to meet new people who believe in the same causes that inspire you. That, and making a real impact on those causes, can infuse your everyday life with more meaning. If you've been stuck in a rut, whether personally or professionally, sometimes the simple act of donating cash can do the trick, open you one gate, and reinvigorate your life.

    5 - Improve Personal Money Management

    For Example, If you set a scheduled $100 donation each month for a particular charity, that can motivate you to be more attentive to your own finances in an effort to ensure you don't default or fall behind in your monthly donations. Anything that gets you to pay closer attention to your bank account is a good thing—especially when it helps those in need.

    6 - Motivate Friends and Family

    When you let your friends and family know of your charitable donations, they may find themselves more motivated to undertake their own efforts to give.

    7 - Promote Generosity in Your Children

    When your kids see you donating money, they're much more likely to adopt a giving mindset as they grow up. Do the same with your kids and you might see similar results.

    8 - Give, If You Can't Volunteer

    This might not necessarily be a positive effect of charitable giving, but if you're too busy to volunteer or otherwise donate your time, giving money is the perfect workaround. Never think that you can't improve someone's life or the world itself if your personal or professional schedule won't allow the time. Writing out a check is a simple way to show you're willing to help others in any way you can.
