How to Donate Without Leaving Your House

Let’s face it, life is busy. Sometimes life gets so busy that we don’t have enough time to go out and do the things we’re interested in, like volunteering with your favorite nonprofit organization.

But fear not! You can still be involved with your dearest philanthropic cause without having to get up from the couch. Interested? Check out these easy ways to donate without having to leave your house.

Donate Online
This one is pretty basic. Almost all nonprofit organizations now have an online donation option you can utilize. Most use a platform to track and manage the donations they receive, so you can be sure that your money and information is handled safely and securely. If the organization you’re interested in doesn’t have this option on their website, try giving them a call and seeing if you can mail them a donation. No house moving required.

Start a Fundraising Page
Some nonprofits provide online fundraising for you to make a profile and invite friends and family to follow through your page. You’re able to donate online as well as include others in the process. Tell them your story about why you love the organization and how their gifts would help those in need. You can even share your profile on social media or via email. Most importantly, you get to help a great cause without leaving the comfort of your own home.

Clean House
Let’s face it, most of us have a lot of extra stuff we could probably do without. Why not clean house a bit while giving back? Go through any gently used clothing, home supplies or toys your family doesn’t need and pack them up to give to a local shelter or cause. Drop them off while on your way to work (we know, you would have to leave home a little bit) or call the organization and see if they offer pick up services.

Become an Organ Donor
Organ donations save lives, and it’s surprisingly easy to get in on the action. Check out the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’s online organ donation page to register and become an organ donor in your state. Then next time you’re at the DMV, ask to put the registration stamp on your license. You get to help others without leaving your computer. Sounds fun, right?

Donate for the Future
Did you know you can include nonprofit organizations as beneficiaries in your will? Oh, yeah. Leaving a charitable gift for the future gives you a feeling of helping the world while letting your favorite causes feel secure for what’s to come. Talk to your loved ones about your plans for the future or chat with a lawyer about drafting a document. When your will gives back to a cause, you can impact the world even after you’re gone.

When it comes to giving back, there’s lots of ways to help out your local nonprofits without having to leave the comfort of your own home. Even with a busy schedule, you can make an impact on the world. So go ahead and try out an idea or two! Get involved and see the difference you can make.
