Charity given to a worthy person simply because it is right to give, without consideration of anything in return, at the proper time and in the proper place, is stated to be in the mode of goodness – Bhavadgita 17.20.
But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. – Matthew 6:3
