Did you know that when you donate to a cause you care about, it will not only benefit charities and those in need, but it can also bring you great returns? Millions of people regularly donate to charities to support the cause they believe. Yet, at the same time, donations have had many positive effects on their lives.

So, when you donate money to charity today, how will you change tomorrow? Here are the three points that have the most profound impact on your life.

1. Charitable donations let your children understand the importance of generosity

When we share the experiences of donating to charities with our children, these experiences can develop their positive and helpful personalities. Children naturally like to help others, so when they grow up, they will have more beautiful memories, which also means that they will cherish what they have as they grow up and will continue to support charity in the future. Sometimes these good qualities can not be exchanged for money. But when we teach them through actions, it is not only beneficial to others, but also beneficial to the future of our family.

2. Charitable donations are tax-deductible

American law stipulates that when we donate to charitable organizations that are legal and within the scope, they will also receive corresponding tax deductions. If an ordinary person donates US$100, his actual expenditure is actually less than US$100, but the recipient organization can get the full benefit of US$100. However, the number of donations under different circumstances and their own circumstances will have an impact on the number of exemptions. In any case, for everyone, if you don’t donate money, you will have to pay a lot of taxes, so why not help others while also getting a lower tax rate and happiness?

3. Provide support for philanthropy and enhance personal value

An article from University College London shows the connection between helping others and our feelings. They said from the report that when we help others, we can promote happiness-related physiological changes in the brain. Simply put, it will be easier for us to get the approval of ourselves and others. In addition, helping others can help us make new friends and connect with the community, and help reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation. When we feel accompanied and supported by others, we will naturally have more hope and happiness in life. When we are satisfied and happy with our donation, our confidence and values will increase with our donation and become a more efficient person.


In my heart, donation is a return to society, it is to satisfy my own satisfaction, and it is also an activity that can truly help others. Finally, I want to use a quote from Bill Gates and Melinda Gates to finish our conversation today: “It’s not because we think about how we’ll be remembered. We would be delighted if someday diseases like polio and malaria are a distant memory, and the fact that we worked on them is too.”
