The information tape of the user of the social network is full of many messages with requests for fundraising.
Someone can not ignore a single ad, and someone - for a while indifferently leafing through them.
However, when the desire to help reallySome people face a serious dilemma: which of the charitable organizations that can be read on the Internet should be sent for help.
To begin with, it is necessary to determine who needs to be helped in the first place, because every non-profit organization has its mission and tasks.
You can read about the activities of the charitable organization on its website, in the same place - to make a donation.
Charitable foundations: what they are like
One of the most common types of NPOs(Non-profit organization) are charitable foundations. In Russia there are more than one dozen and each specializes in something specific. Some are engaged in the treatment or adaptation of children with severe and rare diagnoses (heart disease, nervous system, etc.), others are helping the poor, and also families with many children. There are also those who interact with the homes of the elderly and the elderly.
Some of the funds work with the homeless: they help them to restore documents, legal and medical services.
Another category of funds, which in Russia so farThere are least of all - these are organizations that specialize in providing palliative care. They help those to whom a fatal diagnosis is made. Collected funds can not save lives, but they can significantly alleviate its last moments. Part of the social and charitable programs of such funds are carried out with the support of the church.
On current projects that need sponsorship, you can find out on the website of the local diocese or on the page of the Synodal Department for Charity and Social Service of the ROC.
Funds for the protection of nature, shelters for animals
If the problems of ecology, the disappearance of rare speciesPlants and animals you care about more than the stories of real people, a donation can always be made to a fund for protecting the environment. Another of the now widespread forms of charity is the transfer of funds and the support of shelters for homeless animals. On the site of many shelters, as a rule, information is placed, in what they feel a special need.
Not only charity funds, but also a number of mediaHas difficulties with financing. First of all, this concerns educational and religious publications. Since they do not have the opportunity to earn on commercial advertising, they exist only thanks to sponsorship grants. The financial assistance provided by patrons of art is visible to the naked eyes - it is thanks to their support that the editorial staff have the opportunity to pay for the work of journalists and produce interesting materials.
Kraudfanding: raise funds for treatment or make a film
Kraudfanding is a new kind of charityCooperation. Through special portals people collect funds for absolutely different things and even projects: one for the operation, others for the necessary medical equipment, and others for the production of the film. One of the successful examples of crowd-framing in Russia is the creation of the album of the Bi-2 group, the funds for which were actually collected from the world in a thread.
Money transfer methods
After choosing a charitable organizationYou need to go to her personal site and find the bookmark "Donate" (or something close in meaning). Then you should choose how the money will be transferred. In most cases, funds can be transferred in several ways: by writing off the required amount from a bank card, electronic wallet or phone number, and also paying a receipt in the bank branch.
Another important nuance: To avoid the possibility of deception, donations are best done not to individuals (except in situations where there is confidence that their stories are true), but to foundations that have a good reputation and extensive experience in the field of charity.
