Why give to those in need

Updated on February 15, 2016

Charitable donations

Are you looking for a way that you can give back to your community or those who are in need? There are many charities out there who are looking to take your donated items and monies to support their worthy causes.

When considering poverty in our community, many people conclude that there is nothing we can do, when in fact this is not true. The scale of poverty is immense and we may, at times, seem powerless to stop it. While poverty is indeed extreme and widespread, it is easy to forget just how many people there are who are in need in our community and throughout the United States. When giving to an effective charity, the size of your donation directly correlates with the number of people you are able to help. But you don't have to be rich to make a significant difference; every donation counts towards improving another individuals quality of life.

First, one must find a charity that supports the causes that you hold dear to your heart; whether this is animal rights, education, or homelessness. Many charities collect items for donation such as comics, collectibles, antiques, instruments, cars, boats, and computers to name just a few. a local charity might use such donated items to help out educational endeavors and youth activities through your community. Another great thing about donating to charities, besides the philanthropic benefit, is the tax deduction savings. Every donation has the potential to save you possibly thousands in federal tax deduction savings.

The process of making a charitable donation really is proving that you care, not only about the well-being of your own family, but about the well-being of many families that are in need of assistance and you will be helping yourself by way of tax deductions based on the market value of your boat. Search for charities that support the causes that you believe to be valuable. Find out more about the tax deductions on the IRS website. Good luck and good donating.
