Brokers for Charity: Ways to Give Back this Summer


August 9, 2017

Giving back to your local community is a great way to help others. Whether you need to for service hours or are looking for more ways to get involved, there is much that be done. Volunteering allows you to make an impact within your area and is also a great networking opportunity. In some cases, you can even put your volunteer work on your resume! But volunteering is not the only way you can give back. You have plenty of options to make a difference. From your time to money, to other untraditional ways including using brokers for charity, there is much you can do to give back this summer.

Time

Time is one of the best ways to give back. You will create memories that will last a lifetime and feel great about the work you have done. First, take time to clean up your neighborhood. From picking up trash to pulling weeds and sprucing up landscaping, put together a group that can help to take care of spaces once a month. Do you have a talent or skill that is good for others? Offer your services for free. From resume writing to providing financial advice, you can share your skills for the good of others. Last, find charities or volunteer locations to spend your time. To find opportunities, look at opportunities in Denver, or any city, from VolunteerMatch.org.

Money and Items

Many people do not have much time to donate to their community. There are opportunities through funds or other donations to help. Even if you do not have much to give, there are options. Research local causes that matter to you that you can donate to. Whether it is $5 or $500, anything helps. You can also donate goods that you no longer need. Take some time to go through your house and garage to see what you do not need. From there, you can find charities and locations that you can donate those goods too. Be sure to get documentation for your financial or physical donations as you can write it off on your taxes.

Untraditional Ways  

Did you know there are other ways to give back this summer that are not the traditional routes? A popular way is to mentor in your community. This is a great way to help youth and make an impact on lives. You can also consider utilizing a service that gives back to a charity, such as a broker. If you are considering selling your home, you can use a realtor that donates to charities that matter to you.
