Yeah I think I’m going to start donating to police departments getting defunded across the country

Yep. Gas and insurance for my daughter’s vehicle. Makes her feel great, but not so much for me. But on a serious note, my wife and I donate regularly to various cancer research orgs. Bittersweet feelings on that since we lost her brother and mother to pancreatic cancer.

That's wonderful!

The wife and I donate to Catholic Charities each month. They provide housing, healthcare, and disaster assistance, as well as pregnancy and newborn aid, along with soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and the like. Makes me feel a little bit warm and fuzzy inside, but not as much as it would if I were on the front lines, not just providing money from the distance of my home/office.

I donate monthly to the NAACP LDF and it makes me feel great. It’s the least I can do to help those in need.

I can’t donate until my personal money problems are resolved. Once I’m out of debt, I can.

Doesn’t the donation cost me nothing if I can deduct it from my taxes? Moved to the US recently do not sure how it works here

No you can deduct donations from taxable income (so you get some percentage back as a refund) in very general terms

Yes, doesn’t always make me feel anything special but there are a lot of people who need it more than I do

Yes, a little, but after I hit my savings goal end of year I plan to up the donations
