A Guide to Meaningful Giving

Acts of kindness and generosity can make a significant impact on the world. This time of year has people wanting to give back to the community, but many people don’t know where to start. The 5 T's of donation can be helpful in ensuring your giving is both impactful and meaningful.

Time: Give the Gift of Your Presence 

Time is a valuable resource, and donating it can be as impactful as monetary contributions. This can be accomplished by volunteering your time to organizations or causes that align with your passions. CP has three major events that you can volunteer at which can be found 
HERE. The Volunteer Center is also a great place to start when looking to donate your time to the community.

Share Your Skills and Expertise
Your unique skills and talents can be powerful tools for positive change. Consider offering your abilities to others who may benefit. Each person has a unique set of skills that can help others. At CP we encourage the community to donate their talents to benefit clients here. This could be as simple as teaching clients a craft or showing off your musical talents to clients during a music class.

Treasure: Financial Contributions for Lasting Impact
Monetary donations remain a staple in philanthropy, providing essential resources for organizations so they can have a long-lasting future. Financial contributions can be as little or as much as you feel comfortable with and can make a significant impact. At CP, we appreciate any financial gift, and if you would like to make one you can do that HERE.

Things: Donate Goods and Supplies 
Physical donations can have a direct and immediate impact on those in need. Everyone has different items they no longer need that others may benefit from. It can be helpful to reach out and ask what specific items are needed. Here at CP, we can always use more art and cleaning supplies. If you would like to donate goods or supplies email mszymanski@wearecp.org or call (920)337-1122.

Testimony: Advocate for the Cause
We can often be the best advocates for a cause that is close to our heart. You can do this by raising awareness through social media, speaking engagements, or participating in community events. Your voice can inspire others to join the cause and amplify the impact of your donation. To get involved with CP, you can share our message or interact with our social media posts.

Incorporating the 5 T's of donation into your holiday giving plan allows you to make a meaningful impact on your community during this season of giving. Whether you're contributing time, talent, treasure, things, or your testimony, each form of donation plays a vital role in building a more compassionate world. Remember, the true essence of giving lies not just in the act itself but in the positive and lasting change it brings to the lives of those in need. Embrace the 5 T's, and watch as your contributions help make a difference in the world around you.
