Want to donate to charity but feel strapped for cash? Here are some tips to help you make your donations stress-free.
Budget for Your Donations: Just like you would budget for your healthcare, food, and education for your children, it is important to budget for your donations too. This will help you to avoid feeling overstretched financially as you will only donate what you have planned for.
Go Monthly: If you are making a big annual donation, which strains you, you could split it into small manageable chunks that you can donate on a monthly basis so that you don’t have to go through financial stress each time you are making a donation.
Opt for Alternative Ways of Making Donations: Dishing out money is not the only way to support a cause. There are other ways that don’t necessarily involve money, and they include promoting charitable organisations using your social network, donating goods, volunteering your time, and writing correspondences to celebrities who can give financial support.
Donate When You Feel It Is Convenient: Everyone go through financial challenges, including the rich. The best time to donate to a charity is not when you are undergoing such challenges.
