This time of year is known for its many heartwarming and joyous occasions. More loved ones get together to celebrate their relationships and, people in general, tend to be not only more giving to one another, but more forgiving and charitable as well.
Did you know that giving not only makes the giver happier but it also physically affects the brain by lighting up the same regions that show pleasure when eating chocolate or viewing something beautiful? It’s true! Giving is something that our brain looks forward to.
Working in the nonprofit sector, you rely on the idea of philanthropic spirit from those who connect with your cause in order to gain their support.
When you’re ready to choose an online giving platform, having clear guidelines can help you feel more secure that you’re making the best decision for your nonprofit.

Anyone who has given their money, time, skills or services for the sake of helping others (without expecting or even wanting anything in return) knows that this kind of giving feels good, if not amazing! Undoubtedly, most of us “givers” would agree that helping others is one of the most fulfilling experiences we can have. In fact, a multitude of studies are readily available on this very subject, and they’ve all pointed to a similar conclusion; giving promotes well-being!
