These days it is scarce that the corporate budget reserves considerable sums to invest in charity. Despite this sad premise, it is possible to plan several activities other than the core business and be dedicated to helping nature and others; small gestures make it possible to have exciting results even with small investments. Appropriate, however, is to make a point: doing charity could bring some positive outcomes such as improved corporate image, growth of team spirit among colleagues, and increased pride of employees in working for a company that cares about the world where we live. For this reason, it is necessary to donate some economic resources to charitable activities. 1. seed savers: few people know what this is about regarding seed savers. In a nutshell, it involves planting vegetable or fruit plants in one’s garden or terrace to obtain seeds to be sent by mail to an association, which, in turn, gets them to people in poor countries worldwide. The main reason is that in many third-world countries, it is only possible to buy seeds that have been genetically modified to be sterile so that farmers, from year to year, are forced to repurchase them instead of using those born naturally from the plants. Various seed-saver associations on the Internet provide kits that are easy to plant and capable of growing even simply in a pot on the terrace. This excellent idea can be applied to a corporate setting by allocating a part of the garden or office terraces for planting these plants. Adequate information on the small garden fence and the company website would improve the image and considerable popularity for a minimal and ethical investment.


The PlayPump is a kind of merry-go-round for children, but it has the vital function of enabling water extraction from a well. Installing a PlayPump costs about €5,000 and should provide water for about 2,500 people. For donations over 100-150€, the Roundabout Outdoor Association will send you a handmade replica model of the pump, an exciting item to furnish offices such as the concierge desk or counter with the public. The third way is to adopt a child from a distance. Long-distance adoption of a child is a very famous mode of charity even in Italy, even though, in reality, it has never really boomed. In addition to the fundamental charitable aspect of supporting, at least financially, the life of a child from a developing country, an exciting part is that, for an offer, it is possible to receive a photo of the adopted child. So why not adopt one child per office and give the picture to hang in the offices? Again, the expense is not high; each office would have “its child.”


In addition to preserving the world’s most extensive forests, it is interesting to know that several groups are dealing with forests closer to where we live that would undoubtedly appreciate financial help with their environmental protection activities. A case of excellence is Valcucine, which founded the Bioforest project by involving other industrial entities to protect a natural site in the Pordenone area. Having undertaken a project to protect one’s land instead of a physically distant land could be a winning choice for those companies whose stakeholders live near the company. The fifth way is competition among employees. The number of associations, groups, and individuals to which donations can be given is virtually infinite, and each of us has preferences related to our own life and mentality.

For this reason, why not propose an amount (or a certain number of hours) for each office to invest in charity in a project of their choice? Why not create an event where a representative presents to colleagues where that office’s funds have been allocated and why they decided on that specific project? I am sure that by implementing such an idea, some exciting projects would emerge, and the corporate climate would be improved, don’t forget that one of the best companies in the world from a corporate climate point of view also does this: Atlassian.


Donations, volunteering, and personal fundraising are many ways to give to charity. Each person can find the closest area and the most suitable method. The important thing is to rely on recognized entities and choose safe ways. Giving to charity is a choice that helps and makes both those who donate time or resources and those who receive support feel good. Giving to charity has many ways; each person must choose the one that best suits their lifestyle, values, tools, and resources. One can donate items for charity markets; one can present one’s time; one can support a nonprofit organization with regular donations or donate an amount for a particular project through a crowdfunding platform. So let’s see the different ways to give to charity and how to do it safely. Why donate? Donations are one of the easiest and most effective ways to give to charity. Making donations means helping those who need it most. Even a tiny amount can make a difference. In addition, donating is also beneficial to the person making the gesture. Just get started, and you will soon realize this. From donations for natural disasters to fundraisers for the less fortunate, from volunteering in person to buying sympathetic wedding favors, you can always find ways to give to charity.


Why is it important to donate? Donating is vital to contribute, in one’s small way, to building a better world in the one where we live today, unfortunately still marked by enormous inequalities and injustices. Donating means being an active and participating citizen, doing one’s part so that more people can access a more dignified life. Donating is essential so that the spotlight is not turned off on the causes for which we fight and because, concretely, each gift can change another person’s life. When does one give to charity? When choosing the recipient of one’s “good deeds,” the choice is subjective. There is no absolute scale of values; there is no such thing as who is worse off in difficulty than others. Some causes have a more substantial emotional impact than others for certain people, and it is right to follow one’s instincts since few people can devote as much time or money to many different causes. To whom to give to charity. One can give to charity for voluntary associations, third-sector entities, and nonprofit organizations, for scientific research, during humanitarian emergencies, and for international cooperation. The choice can be in the social sphere for poverty alleviation, inclusion, access to education and training, fighting disease, and caring for artistic and cultural heritage—all the way to private fundraisers for specific causes. The range is indeed broad and can have many facets. As we will see in a moment, choosing safe paths is essential.


Giving to charity is a positive thing for you and the community. Research has shown that giving to others can lead to better mental and physical health. So if you are looking for ways to improve your health, donating to charity may be one of the solutions. Giving benefits everyone in many ways: It helps people who need food, shelter, clothing, and more. It helps animals that have been abused or neglected by their owners. It enables the environment by conserving natural resources such as water and air quality. Charities save lives. They help people in need, whether due to natural disasters, violence, or lack of access to essential services such as food, water, and shelter. Nearly one billion people live in extreme poverty, with less than $1.90 daily. Millions more are at risk of poverty due to conflicts in their home countries and volatile global markets. Many also face other challenges, such as discrimination and lack of access to education and health care, which hurt their chances of success.
