4 Positive Benefits of Donating to Charity
Chief Stephen O. Nwankwo Children’s Literacy Foundation International Incorporated is a non-profit organization in Houston, Texas committed to helping children in the developing rural communities of Nigeria. Our dedication to service, combined with the generous donations of our supporters, enables us to help Nigerians acquire high-quality education and health care services.
Aside from helping us provide high-quality education and health care services to developing rural communities, did you know that you can gain other benefits from donating, too?
Here are 4 benefits of donating to charity:
- Experience More Joy and Pleasure
According to research conducted by the National Institutes of Health, participants who donated a portion of the $100 they were provided experienced activated pleasure centers in the brain. Although this experiment was scientific and controlled, it did reveal that donating money can help make you feel better.
- Improve Money Management Skills
If you set a specific donation each month, it can motivate you to pay more attention to your own finances to make sure that you don’t fall behind or default in your monthly donations. This can help improve your personal money management skills, while still helping those in need.
- Set a Good Example
When you let your family and friends know of your charitable donations, you are also setting a good example for them. They may be inspired to take action and exert more effort to give to charity. Remember, it takes a village to address issues such as early childhood education and health care advancement – setting a good example for the people around you is definitely a good thing.
- Bring More Meaning Into Your Life
If you are interested in education and health care advancement, joining and donating to our Literacy Foundation International Incorporated in Houston, Texas, USA is a great opportunity for you to meet new people who are inspired by the same causes that you believe in. Knowing that your donation is making a real impact on important causes can infuse your life with more meaning.
