How-To Be Generous Without Opening Your Wallet

December 29, 2017 1:56 am

Generosity doesn't always need to involve your checkbook. Below are a handful of ways you can be more generous - to family, friends, or your favorite cause - without opening your own wallet.

Give patience. Showing patience to a loved one is a great form of generosity. Whether you're teaching your teenager to drive or holding space for a friend, patience has value, so give a lot of it.

Give time. Volunteering is a wonderful - and free - way to be generous. Volunteer your time at a local shelter, animal sanctuary or learning facility.

Give space. You can hold emotional space for a friend going through a hard time, or physical space for your favorite charity. Do you have a big barn in the back or a cozy finished basement? Host a donation-based event like a movie night or dance party to raise funds for your favorite cause.

Give goods. Dig through your pantry or your attic to find canned goods, sporting goods, clothes or toys to donate to your local charity or drive.

Give services. Do you have a marketable service you could donate? Architects, lawyers, contractors, psychiatrists, artists and more can all donate a few hours a month of services to a non-profit organization in need.
