What To Donate To Orphanage?
If you feel anguished by stories of abandoned children and kids orphaned by the COVID pandemic , you might be searching online for, ‘orphanage near me’ or ‘donate to orphanage’ or ‘what can we donate to orphanage’.
In this blog, let us discuss the best things to donate to an orphanage. Whilst people think money is the only thing that can be given as charity, there are plenty of ways one can bring a smile on the faces of such orphan children.
Many of us feel frustrated, wondering what we can do and if what we do will be enough to make a difference.
We did a small survey amongst people about their thoughts on charity and here’s what we’ve found.
SURVEY DETAILS ABOUT ORPHANAGE DONATION:
• Question: What can be the best thing to donate to an orphanage
• Respondents: 1000 People (regardless of age and gender).
• Sample Size: 100 People (Under Random Sampling method).
• Results: 75 people said money, 20 people said food & 5 people said school uniforms.
Sadly sponsor a child for education came in very last as people don’t know its importance.

Ten Best Things You Can Donate to Support Orphans
1. Talk about the Cause. Spread the message about plight of orphans with your network. While it may not seem much, by sharing posts, stories, and images with on social media, you are leveraging network effects which will amplify the cause.
2. Donate Money. While adoption may be too difficult for you, you can make a one-time donation or recurring donation that fits your budget. Even a small donation can go a long for an orphanage struggling to raise funds. Even a small amount can change the life of a child.
3. Sponsor a child. While a few dollars a month may not seem to make a real difference, making a few dollars donation to an Orphanage in India may give a vulnerable child a chance to eat a nutricious meal, receive an education, and a safe shelter.
4. Volunteer. When you volunteer, you bring help to those most in need such as orphans. Volunteering can help you find new connections and friends, help you learn new skills, prepare you for taking on leadership roles, make you feel happy and boost mental health and advance your career.
5. Adopt a Child. Consider adopting a child. Read about how to adopt a child here.
6. Donate Clothes & School Uniforms:
Growing kids always need clothes. When we are buying 101st dress for our kid on festivals like Dussehra and Diwali, there are kids searching for at least one set of clothes without a hole to be worn on festivals. Isn’t it heart-breaking? So Clothes can be the next best thing to donate apart from money. Click to donate
7. Donate Scholarships:
India is a country where the majority of kids want to go to school but education is not affordable by all. So, donating scholarships to the budding kids will be the greatest donation to an orphanage. Click to donate.
8. Donate Old Toys:
Recalling a recent incident where a 6-year-old came to donate his toys. At our orphanage, many kids are enthusiastically playing with it. For those little angels, that’s the best donation. So, please ask your children to donate their old toys.
9. Donate Food:
Who doesn’t love snacks? Especially, kids, they love it. They don’t care how costly or cheap they are. Sometimes just a small packet of biscuits makes their day. So, snacks are one of the best things to donate to an orphanage. Feed poor kids. Donate via Milaap.
10. Donate Your Time:
Love and care comes above all… at times we need that at our orphanage. Our kids love visitors. It feels like family to them. So instead of anything else, we would love it if donors sometimes visit us in person. 🙂
