Langley Charities – Community Groups
Langley is a very giving community with several noteworthy causes and Langley charities. The principle of Altruism, also known as selflessness, is a very common practice. Various cultures and religions utilize the act of Altruism through many different ways.
When considering donating or contributing to a charity, most individuals align themselves with a charity that reflects their own ideals. You may also want to consider the Impact vs Overhead argument which in simplistic terms, how much of your donation goes to benefiting the end user vs how much goes to running the day to day operations of the charity.
Charities vs Non-Profits is a daily challenge for most. The basic difference is that a registered charity can issue tax receipts for donations where a Non-Profit can’t. Frustrating this can be when the cause you very much believe in can’t issue you a beneficial tax receipt.
Don’t let someone pressure you into making a donation without first researching their organization and learning more about them. Understanding how your donation is handled is very important and should be a priority on your list of criteria when choosing a charity to support.
Here are some of the local Langley Charities and Non-Profits.
