Making a Good Will Donation to Charity Can Be Beneficial for You and Others

good-will-donation-articleIf you have the desire to help others, making a good will donation to a charity is a great way to fulfill that wish. Donations help charitable organizations fund their missions of providing support to people in need. However, the selfless act of donating to a charity offers plenty of benefits to the person making the donation, too.

For starters, making a good will donation can enable you to free up valuable space in your home. If you have possessions that you no longer want or need, giving those items to charity allows you to rid your home of unnecessary clutter while helping others in the process. Another incentive of making a charity donation is the potential tax benefits* associated with your contribution. In most cases, when you donate items to charity you will receive a tax receipt and will be able to write off the donation when you file your tax return for that year. One of the biggest benefits of making a good will donation to charity, though, is simply the feeling you will have knowing that your contribution will impact the life of another person.

At American Kidney Services (AKS), a 501(c)3 charitable organization, we welcome donations of clothing, electronics, small furniture, toys, books, and other household items from residents in Atlanta, Kennesaw, Alpharetta, Marietta, and all surrounding communities. All donations to our charity are tax deductible* and benefit people who have been diagnosed with kidney disease.
