Top Reasons to Make a Donation to a Charitable Organization

donation-chambleeWhen you make a donation to charity, you can undoubtedly help others in need. However, giving to charity can also be widely fulfilling for the donor as well. Knowing some of the benefits involved when you make a donation could encourage you to donate more regularly and make an even greater impact on people in the community who are in need.

You can improve your sense of well-being when you make a donation to charity. Knowing that you sacrificed property to benefit others in need can provide an immense personal satisfaction. Making a donation to support a cause you feel strongly about can be even more gratifying. Furthermore, charity giving can have tax benefits as well, as donations to many charitable organizations are tax deductible*.

In addition to providing assistance to those who need help, donating items to charity can help you get rid of clutter in your home. You can free up valuable storage space in your home by donating clothes that no longer fit, electronics and furniture that you no longer use, and toys that your children have outgrown. Plus, by keeping these items in circulation when you make a donation, you keep them out of a landfill, which makes a positive impact on the environment.

If you live in the Atlanta area, a great place to make a donation is American Kidney Services (AKS).

We offer free donation pickup services from homes and business throughout the Atlanta area; please use our online form to schedule our drivers to collect the items you wish to donate. Donations for our charity can also be dropped off at any of our conveniently located drop boxes, at our storefront location in Atlanta, or at any Value Village thrift department store.
