Kinds of Charities You Can Get Involved With

Charities have been in place for hundreds of years in one form or another offering help for needy causes. What began as groups focused on helping people in dire straits has evolved into worldwide charities and nonprofit groups committed to improving the world as a whole.
In order for a business to classified as a charity, they must be registered as a 501(c)(3) organization with the IRS. In order to qualify, the business cannot show a profit. Any revenue must be either reinvested in the organization or budgeted for the next year. Adhering to this code makes the organization is tax-exempt, giving it more financial resources to further its causes.
Donating time or money to a charitable organization can be a noble way to support a community or an important cause. Volunteers and funding are what make these charities possible. Listed below are a few kinds of organizations that are striving to make the world a better place.

Health-Related Charities 
These groups focus on improving health standards both locally and around the world. Their intent will range from promoting public awareness of certain health risks to funding research for diseases to helping pay for medical treatments.

Environmental Groups 
These nonprofits look for ways to save the planet from an early extinction caused by the carelessness of humanity in the past. With a clear vision of the impact of everyone’s carbon footprint, they work to educate awareness of ecological concerns as well as seeking out new ways to both save and rebuild the environment.
