Benefits of donations

April 1, 2022

When you make a donation at Tare Zameen Foundation, you’re not just empowering and supporting underprivileged children and women but also elevating yourself mentally and
spiritually.
As lord buddha once said that, “before giving, the mind of the giver is happy; while giving, the mind of the giver is made peaceful; and having given, the mind of the giver is uplifted”. It goes
unsaid that, even the smallest amount of your kindness would help more than you think. It will be prosperous for the deprived section of the society and bring out joy even if it is a small portion.

Under section 80G under the income tax act allows citizens of India to be eligible to claim tax deductions for different contributions made as donations. Taxpayers only qualify for section
80G if they donate to the specified relief funds and charitable organizations, with a maximum of 10% of the Gross Total Income deduction. This is one more benefit for taxpayers whose income
source is not directly from business or profession who are entitled to such deductions.
Volitional donations are enjoyable and improve your happiness level, bliss, and contentment. As the science of giving highlights these, the act of sharing with others may increase the brain’s levels of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that channels motivation and reward, resulting in something known as a ‘helper’s high”. When one open-handedly donates, studies show it makes them feel happy, and the warm glow that seems to come from giving helps our sense of
wellbeing.


Several studies prove that donating to your community boost one’s morale, self-esteem, and a sense of purpose/meaning in life.
Donating is not just psychologically beneficial but also physiologically as well, as generosity and act of kindness can lower your blood pressure and hypertension. Psychologists suggest that
this decline in blood pressure could be the result of positive social relations. Research conducted by the University of Oregon found that donating activates the pleasure center in your brain.
The act of donation also carries a profound social impact on you and your family. It gives you a status and improves your connections with like-minded people who share the same beliefs are you.


It teaches your children the valuable lesson of ‘caring is sharing’ and loving your neighbors as yourself. When you involve yourself in charity work, you subconsciously become a role model for your family and friends and influence them into joining in the good cause.
At the end of the day, a donation is the ultimate win-win situation which should be an essential part of our lives, and we should all build the habit of practicing it. It helps us improve our health, become more grateful for our blessings, develop humanitarian values in our children, and many other benefits.
