Curt Landry Ministries is engaged in a lot of mission work throughout Israel, and we rely heavily on the generous support of our donors. Many of our donors choose to support us as a way to grow closer to God and to give a blessing to the needy and impoverished people of Israel. However, there are more reasons to give to charity than simply following what God desires out of us who have been blessed with so much.
Here are a few additional reasons you should consider making charitable donations:
Stay informed about social justice/injustice issues. Any time you donate to a charitable organization, you’re likely to do more research into the missions the organization is
conducting. By donating to Curt Landry Ministries, for example, you will learn more about the plight of children born into poverty in Israel and the lack of education and safety they have, as well as the economic struggles of the region and the very real fears of war and violence constantly looming. These are extremely important issues that affect millions of lives, and it’s important for people in the Western world to be aware of them. Only by spreading awareness can we truly hope to inspire people to make a difference.
Building social circles. If you choose to volunteer your time with a charity, you have the chance to create some incredible life experiences and to forge brand new friendships with people who, like you, are interested in doing well in needy communities. Many people build lifetime bonds with others who have interests in charity and philanthropy.
Tax deductible. In the United States, the amount of money you donate to a charitable organization is completely tax deductible. Additionally, any money you spend on traveling, parking or other expenses related to charitable activities are also tax-deductible if you are not being reimbursed for these expenses. That can make a big difference come tax season.
Sense of purpose. There are many people who decide to contribute to charities as a way to find a sense of purpose and meaning in the world. If you have ever struggled with your purpose, getting involved in charitable work and donations could help you truly make a difference. Many find that the reward is even greater for those who are blessed to give rather than receive!
