SECTION 1



CHARITY




The practice of charity means the giving
of help to those in need who are not
related to the giver.

Charitable giving is the act of giving money,
goods or time to the unfortunate, either
directly or by means of a charitable trust
or other worthy cause. Charitable giving as
a religious act or duty is referred to as
almsgiving or alms.

The name stems from the most obvious expression
of the virtue of charity is giving the objects
of it the means they need to survive.

The poor, particularly widows and orphans,
and the sick and disabled, are generally
regarded as the proper objects of charity.
Some groups regard charity as being
properly directed toward other members of
their group.

Most forms of charity are concerned with
providing food, water, clothing, and shelter,
and tending the ill, but other actions may
be performed as charity: visiting the
imprisoned or the homebound, dowries for
poor women, ransoming captives, educating
orphans.

CHARITABLE
ORGANIZATION
NPO




A charitable organization is a type of
non-profit organization (NPO). The term
is relatively general and can technically
refer to a public charity (also called
"charitable foundation," "public foundation"
or simply "foundation") or a private
foundation.

It differs from other types of NPOs in
that its focus is centered around goals
of a general philanthropic nature (e.g.
charitable, educational, religious, or
other activities serving the public
interest or common good).

The legal definition of charitable
organization (and of charity) varies
according to the country and in some
instances the region of the country
in which the charitable organization
operates.

The regulation, tax treatment, and
the way in which charity law affects
charitable organizations also varies.
