Critical Literature Review: Community Care

Community Care

People would donate their money to private organizations out of morality and for good of the community. Private organization should take over all Community care programs so the government can focus on other issues that are more important(Daly, Lewis, 1998 pp.90-101).

Private assistance has done a great job in helping the community tremendously and government help is not needed. Eighty-six percent of Americans give to one or more charitable organizations. They represent all ages, incomes, occupations and education levels. Of the Americans that give donations to organizations, ninety percent of donations come from individuals and the remaining ten percent comes from foundations and corporations. While corporations and foundations may be the source of some big single donations. Corporations are more likely to give money if they know the community at large is also supportive of your efforts.
