Individual Donations

boy2_566X848"While a tremendous amount of money is donated by foundations and corporations, much more—some years as much as seven times more—is donated by individuals. Individuals, like corporations or groups, can make direct monetary donations to a cause, or they can donate material and equipment, or they can serve as volunteers. Their gift may be making a charitable organization a benefactor of their estate. They may choose to frequent businesses that promise to support certain causes or that give "credit" to local schools or other groups based on purchases by local patrons. One individual may support a fund-raising effort for cancer research by volunteering to run in a race, while another individual supports that cause by agreeing to donate money for every mile the volunteer runner completes. Individuals volunteer for an unlimited number of projects and organizations, freely sharing themselves to support every segment of U.S. society".
