Also looking for "religious" or "other." "Other" is usually one of the standard options. Why not here?

Most that do that do so by helping, whether with disaster relief, food pantry, etc. And if they are not helping those in need, I would question them, too.

I tend to donate to local causes, especially since I can easily see what the funds are going to. I don't donate to "major charities" because I prefer ones that use 100% of donated funds to help those in need. With major charities part of your donation goes to "administration fees", "advertising", etc. and you would be surprised how much of your donation actually ends up where you intend it to go. The groups I donate to are entirely volunteer and take no "overhead" out of charity donations -- 100% goes to the cause.

I usually will give to my church's fund, which goes to helping feed, clothe, and shelter people in need. That falls under the "Humanitarian" category, for those who can't figure that out. USUALLY&, church organizations are there to help those in need...so there really is no need to have another section saying "religious organization or church". Humanitarian should cover that. And if what the church is doing doesn't fall under that category, I would question supporting it.

Did i miss whoever mentioned tithing? I donate but i will never tithe. Sadly that is a problem in many churches but as Jesus never asked anyone to tithe.... in fact he said the old widow who put in the smallest amount actually gave the most because she gave out of her want and out of her heart. I prefer to give to my religion because i know every penny of it goes to where it's needed and not lining anyones pocket. Rantish over lol.

How does donating to a church help more than a real charity? Most Churches will keep a majority of those "donations" and then they might help people out. Religion is just a scam!

Actually, tithing is introduced in the OT before the law was given (Abraham gave tithes of all to Mechisidech), during the law (Moses), and after the law was superseded by Jesus Christ (Paul in the Epistles). Tithing is indeed scriptural, and God's blessing is promised to those who honor him with the first fruits of their labor. The widow gave more than 10% - she gave all that she had, which was far more than a tithe. Anything above the tithe is an offering, but not giving God His 10% is robbing Him (Malachi). Not to go all hyper on you, but Jesus does, in fact, ask you to tithe... Just saying.

He encourage tithing, the fact you mentioned Jesus' presence with the old widow speaks for itself. Jesus argues that the widow has given the most because while the rich have only given from their surplus, and thus have not sacrificed anything to God, the widow has indeed sacrificed greatly. She has given even all her living, suggesting that she may now not have money for food.

I'll give to the church when the minister, pastor etc comes to church driving a 20 yr old car that leaks oil and is wearing a raggedy 10 yr old threadbare suit--- so guess i'll never be donating because the chance of that happening is slim and none. Whatever happened to living a life of poverty?
Kayelyn75

All the pastors I have ever known have had cars that were functional, not flashy. In fact, I DO know a few who drove cars that were quite a bit older. And when they buy a new (to them) car, they choose ones that are less expensive, even getting pre-owned, because they also see that buying an expensive, flashy car serves no real purpose.

That's because you never had to live one. Why should the pastor have the worst car, the most unfashionable clothes, and make less money than the rest of the church members? How does that give a good impression to anyone? I think those who minister the Word of God are worthy of at least the median income of their average church member. They do not need to live above their congregation, but neither should they be the most poverty stricken people in the church. If the pastor is constantly worrying about where his next meal, house payment, etc comes from, he won't be much good to the church. By the way, my husband has had some of his suits more than 10 years, we finally traded our 12-year old 380,000 mile truck in for a newer (2011) model, and I outfit my children with hand-me-downs and thrift store bargains. We have been in ministry for 13 years. Be kind and generous to those who minister.

That's just bs, the "ministers" wouldn't do it if they didn't get paid so much. If they volunteered their time or got paid a significant amount less then it would be believable they want to do it. When people open their eyes and realise religion is just a scam!

Life of poverty is not biblical. The Bible doesn't tell us to do that – Jesus is more concerned about the heart!
Jesus was very wealthy and was a carpenter. He created furniture for the wealthy, how else did he take care of his disciples? What about when the Romans gambled over his garments? For a piece of cloth?

You need one for Church charities. There are several that are both "humanitarian" and "support."

I give through my church & through the office. Primarily humanitarian, but occasionally one of the other categories. Direct donations to Boy Scouts, Police Dept, Fire Dept (not to the Police or Fire Dept Union), SPCA, etc. Don't particularly trust the organized charities - important to check to see how much of your donation actually gets to the intended target & not into the CEO's bonus & salary. With the grandkid's fundraisers - if I don't want what they are selling, I just write a check to the school's PTA.

Autism speaks is very important, especially since my son has been diagnosed. Also the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance is very important to me. My son was not diagnosed for 6 months because there was no awareness in the medical community where we are. My son had seizures and spasms that went untreated because no one could figure out what was wrong with him. If we could have gotten him diagnosed sooner and gotten him his meds, he would not have had to go through so much physical therapy to learn how to crawl and eat and walk. He might not have had the developmental delays as severe as they were. Getting awareness out there and letting other families know they are not alone is so important.

I know it's still early in the poll, but I am very surprised that environment got the least amount of votes so far. Don't you guys realize that tending to the earth is so important for clean air, water, fertile land providing us healthy food and available greenage for animals to have a habitat. Too many dumps on our soil, waste and mercury going in the water causing acidic oceans, fracking ruining ground water, emissions causing global warming and radiation from nuclear accidents. It's scary but true.

I am sure some will debate whether this is a charity, but first and foremost I give to my church. They are involved in a lot of charitable work both locally and internationally that falls under several of the categories given. If one does not count these, I would say humanitarian or health (I feel like there is some overlap here). It is not that I do not find other kinds of charities worthy, but it is difficult for me personally to justify giving money to help animals, for example when there are people, especially children, in other countries who do not even have enough to eat each day, access to clean water, or who die from basic ailments that could be easily treated.
