When a generous person gives, there is an exchange and that exchange is not that you are giving to get something in equal monetary value later.  The true giver never expects the person or organization to which they give money to return that to them.  That’s not to say a generous giver doesn’t expect something in return.  They do expect to know they gave to a worthy cause or a person that truly benefits from their giving.  The giving translates into the receiver truly benefiting from the gift.
