The job that you have right now sets you apart from the rest. Compared to millions of Filipinos, you have the means to eat two or more times a day, buy clothes and gadgets, send your children to. You think you can’t do anything that could change the world, but the truth is you can!

Donate a portion of your salary to charities;you may not have immediate means to donate generously, but a little contribution will go a long way. But finding and deciding which charity should receive your money could be a challenge. You only have so much to spend, so how can you choose a charity that will ensure your donations are put into good use?

Know who you want to help

Do you care about the environment? Do you want to send children to school? Do you want to help victims of natural calamities? You know you want to help each one of them, but if you can’t donate to every one of these organizations, then choose the best charity that is in line with the issues that you are most passionate about.

Avoid charities that don’t value your privacy

Some organizations divulge their contributors’ names. Donation requests, letters and endorsements may be sent to you if your name and deeds are made known.

Go for charities that do not pressure their contributors

Some charities send unsolicited email messages or mails that request for contributions. Yes, you want to help, you wish to donate, but you know that it will feel better if you are donating at your own will. Otherwise, your act of helping will not be genuine at all.

Think local

The idea of donating to charities can be overwhelming and the thought of making an impact in your own community can be so much more. Choosing a local charity increases your chance of knowing the group better.

Research

After choosing a charity, study its effectiveness and efficiency. Ask for audited financial statements and documentation to guarantee that donations are distributed. These documents should be presented to you without any hesitations.

Also, conduct a search on the name of the company and check if there are any complaints or lawsuits. From there, you will be able to identify how they respond to mismanagement of funds. If you see this as a red flag, better look for another charity that’s more deserving of your money.

Even if you do not have tons of money to share, there are still a number of things you can do to help the less fortunate. You can use your time, talent and skills in a charitable manner and it can be very rewarding too.
