‘Tis the Season of Giving: How-to Add Giving to Your Budget

The winter season is practically here, and so are the holidays! Make this time of year even more meaningful than usual, by adding giving to your list of annual traditions. There are a variety of ways that you can incorporate this philanthropic activity into your family’s schedule. Take a look at the top picks from our staff here at Bank of Louisiana:


  1. Donate Your Time.

Speak with local charities and non-profit organizations to inquire about potential opportunities for you and your family to serve. Groups like the Salvation Army, local food banks, and the Boys & Girls club are always looking for volunteers, especially during the holidays!


2. Budget a Monthly Amount to Donate

Add a category to your budget for the funds you wish to donate to others. It can be as affordable as or generous as your budget allows. Whatever you and your family can donate will be much appreciated by the receiving organization.


3. Use Bonuses to Donate

Next time you receive a bonus at work, consider giving a portion of it to a charity or nonprofit of your choosing. These unplanned additional funds can make a big difference for both you and the organization. Plus, most donations are tax deductible!


4. Donate Supplies

Have some extra items around the house that you no longer use? Canned goods in the pantry that you never seem to eat? These are all great things to donate to an organization in need! Items as simple as unused toys can mean a world of difference to a child who’s never had one.


This holiday season, share your love for others through designated donations. Whether its donating your time, money, or supplies, every effort counts, and is always appreciated.
