Great Charities to Donate to on a Budget

Hi folks, J.G. Wentworth here with a special blog on charity.

At J.G. Wentworth, the nationwide leader in purchasing structured settlement and annuity payments for cash, we know how hard our customers work for their money. Yet we also know how fundamentally kind they are, and how many of our customers would love to make a difference in the world but don’t think they have enough money to make that difference.

That’s why we wrote today’s blog. It goes out to folks looking for a great charity to give to – one that will take even small dollar amounts and use that money to make a real difference in people’s lives. So without further ado, here are five great places that will happily receive small donations and use that money in truly miraculous ways, beginning with:

1) Kiva.org

Kiva has been awarded Charity Navigator’s highest rating. It’s a nonprofit organization that lets donors lend as little as $25 to folks in over 70 countries, and works with microfinance institutions around the world. 100% of every dollar sent to Kiva goes directly to these borrowers – all of whom are in poor countries where such donations can yield truly tremendous results!

2) The Grameen Foundation

The Grameen Foundation is another amazing organization that helps the world’s poor get small loans to improve their lives. The organization’s main focus is in sub-Saharan Africa, South and Central America, and Asia. Give money from now until March 31 and an anonymous donor will double it!

3) Women’s Initiative

Based in San Francisco, Woman’s Initiative focuses on helping women-led businesses, and offers small loans and savings accounts to budding entrepreneurs. According to NerdWallet.com, graduates of the program have started over 1600 businesses!

4) United Prosperity

Looking for a great micro-finance charity that can directly help out families in need? This organization works in areas of severe poverty, and after you give money you actually get to see who you are helping!

5) BRAC

This organization operates out of Bangladesh, and provides loans and savings to farmers and entrepreneurs – mostly women – in severely impoverished regions of this already very poor country. They also tackle human rights and health care!

Looking for other organizations that you can donate ten, five, even a single dollar to? Do a little online research on your own on areas of personal interest and you’ll undoubtedly find dozens of reputable organizations worthy of your money and your trust. It’s just that easy, and you will make a difference.

We hope you’ve enjoyed reading this brief look at some great charitable organizations that take even small donations. And as always, if you ever want information about your structured settlement or annuity, or are looking to get cash now for your future payments, call J.G. Wentworth anytime at 877-227-4713.
