charity and volunteeringCharity and Volunteering

The definition of charitable organization in American law can be traced back to the Statute of Charitable Uses (43 Eliz. I c4) enacted by the English Parliament in 1601, which has been described as “the starting point of the modern law of charities”. By volunteering time, expertise, resources and money to a charitable, or nonprofit, organization, people have discovered the gift in giving for themselves.
