It is not controversial to say that many people donate to charity as a means of expressing to both themselves and society at large that they are good, virtuous people. People also donate because they do have a deep connection to the plight of others, and sometimes to specific societal evils that charities are working to eradicate. But there are reasons that charity is important beyond these.
Societal attitudes are shaped by where the community decides to put its power. Charity is one of the best ways of using the power of the community for a greater good. As a result, it also teaches about compassion and generosity for its own sake, especially across generational lines.
It is no overstatement to say that there are communities that may vanish without charity, whether it is as a result of illness, death, or the need to move to other and more destitute communities and ways of living. Charity sustains and uplifts communities so that they can survive and thrive.
There are serious issues that charity is fighting. Helping raise the profile of a charity by donating to them also shines a light on the causes that the charity is fighting for. This can help shine a light on forms of poverty, lack of opportunity, need for health care, and other evils that we should all seek to eliminate from the modern world.
Helping others is important for human beings. It helps us feel a sense of our place and purpose, which can lead to a more fulfilled life. We are social creatures and, as such, creating better communities also helps us, such as by reducing poverty around us.
