Charitable Organization List | My Favorite Charities

Charity is great for the soul!

But did you know you can give to charitable organizations and still not have the right spiritual attitude about charity?

Below is My Favorite Charitable Organization List, but let us examine the Bible first to improve your spiritual well-being as you generously give to your favorite causes…

 

A Spirit of Charity in Your Mind and Soul

 

Charity Quote1 Corinthians 13:1-7

1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Notice this passage from Corinthians says you can have faith to move mountains and bestow ALL your goods to feed the poor, but if you do not have a spirit of charity, you are nothing.

Having a spirit of charity means that your giving comes from a gladness from within to give of yourself in many ways. To help people (friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, strangers) meet a need they have and to do so with happiness in your heart.

 

More Scripture on Charity

 

1 Timothy 1:5

5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:

 

1 Peter 4:8

8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

 

Charity is the end of the commandments, the last thing that you put on as a Christian and is the greatest of all the previous spiritual gifts that you have developed in your Christian life.

Though you may be meek and humble in the Lord if you do not show mercy in a spirit of charity to all those who you meet and deal with every day, then you are missing the point of ‘love thy neighbor.’

Jesus enduring the suffering of the cross to save sinners is the greatest example of charity.

An act of charity is an act in humility when you do not boast about it or seek reward in return.

Jesus’ Command to Be Charitable

 

Poor ChildrenMatthew 25:35-40

35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

  • I am a follower of Christ and love what you have put here in regards to the many different charities out there as well as scriptures you have shared. My family usually picks one charity place at Christmas time. But you have provided a list of many more places. We will looking at these as well. 

    The ones you have listed seem like they have great causes behind them. 

    • Hi Jag, thank you for your encouraging comment.

      Yes, there are a lot of great causes and many on my list are Christian oriented, but what I really look for in a Charity is that they are good stewards with the money, their CEO’s are not overpaid and a cause that is close to my heart.

      It sounds like your spirit of giving is in the right place, giving the glory to the Lord. Always remember that our opportunities to be generous are gifts from God and your spirit will be joyful.

      God Bless You and Your Family

  • Thank you for reminding us of what the Lord expects as a true act of charity.  Too many times we offer something thinking more about any benefit that we’ll receive in return.  When we give something or do an act of charity purely to benefit another, then we can call ourselves true Christians. 

    • Yes, Janelle, giving without the expectation of return is very rewarding and provides much joy to the Christian heart.

      I really get a lot of joy myself, in spreading the joyfulness that comes from giving generously with the right Christian attitude of giving the glory to Jesus. All our opportunities to give and also be kind and gracious to others are wonderful gifts from God to put a smile on our faces and a song in our hearts.

      God Bless You

  • It’s great that you’ve listed so many charities to choose from. I know there are many people who would like to donate, but don’t realize how many choices there are out there.

    True charity comes from the heart and a desire to help others without the expectation of getting something in return. Your passages are a great reminder of what the spirit of charity really is. Thank you!

    • Thank you for your comment, Janelle.

      Yes, a lot of good work going on in the Lord’s name. It makes me proud to be Christian that so many give a lot to help those in need.

      The opportunities for charity, including day to day being kind and gracious to others and in the home are all gifts from God. If we remember this, the spirit of charity is right where it should be within us.

      God Bless You and Your Family

  • Thank you for the list of charities. Whenever you are searching for charities, you never know if they are actually “real” or have good intentions. I’ve seen many news stories about how gofundme can be used for wrong doing & for their own pleasure. Especially if they do it for someone else & take the money & run. Also, the list is detailed with what the charity stands for which is great. When I went on church youth trips, we would help charities all over the United States that had good causes.

    • You’re very welcome, Rachel.

      Yes, there are also many charities where I think the CEO is way overpaid, also. I look for charities to be good stewards of the money, CEOs that are not overpaid and causes I can really get behind.

      Gofundme probably has a lot of red alert, maybe a scam situations just because of the nature of how they do that. I wouldn’t donate to an individual unless I had a recommendation from someone trusted.

      Sounds like you had a joyful time on your Church youth trips and your spirit of giving is in the right place.

      All glory and honor to God. God Bless You

  • I myself love donating to a good cause when I am able to, because for me giving is by far more rewarding then anything else in life.  I have been blessed with a wonderful life, but there are so many people out there who need help, and everyone who can donate should.

    Some of my favorite charities are Feed the Children, Red Cross, St. Jude’s Hospital, and Shriner’s Hospitals for Children.   I really enjoyed reading your Article.  

    Thanks

    -Dora

    • Hi Dora, thank you for your comment.

      Besides the Lord’s love, peace and hope we have the opportunity for charity to bring great joy into our lives.

      Every opportunity to be generous is a wonderful gift from God.

      I’m glad you enjoyed the article and God Bless You.
