Nonprofit organizations sometimes run capital or endowment campaigns that focus on larger donations. Nevertheless, larger donations do not have to be reserved for such campaigns or glamorous improvements. A large gift that an organization can use just to cover salaries or janitorial services will take a huge burden off a nonprofit's balance sheet anytime.
If you can afford only a small gift, don't feel that you cannot contribute to a capital campaign. Charities value every gift they get, and they will welcome the opportunity to build a longer-term relationship with you. In many cases, you can even donate online, whether it be cash in small amounts, or large.
