- What is a Donation?
A Donation, when referred to in canon law in the Roman Catholic Church, is defined as the gratuitous transfer to another of some right or thing. When it consists in placing in the hands of the donee some movable object it is known as a gift of hand (donum manuale, an offering or oblatio, an alms).
- How much should I donate?
All Christian stewards must consider prayerfully the gifts they have received from God, and they should make a decision (in advance from the “first fruits” instead of what is left over after obligations have been met) about what will be given.
