giving is made to gain certain release and joy by ones good deed and a perfect foundation for reflecting ones goodness to attain good secluded states.
So when asked "to whom should one give", the Sublime Buddha replayed: "Where ever one feels inspired". If further asked where giving bears great fruits, those on the path or even arrived are pointed out.
Aside of the always proper occasion of giving toward those with metta, with virtue, there are four more common occasion proper to give: toward one new arriving, one leaving, one hungry, one sick.
Aside of those anchors, good to take care that one's giving does not hurt, harm others or oneself (virtue).
Sure, a wise, intended to give, gives with respect, by own hand, careful (as good householder told, certain gift can be for some even a burden) and wise considered and master in giving usually give more then requested.
In any case, most importand, to have joy with ones lightening, giving, and what will turn out with the given will no more in the givers sphere, yet the good mind-states, before giving, while, and reflecting on it often, is what may follow for very long time, such is the power of joy in giving, not to speak of giving with a mind of right view, Metta: "May you all act in ways to find the way to real peace by yourself with ease. May this be a support for you happiness."
And not to forget after done, or while doing: Dedicating and share one's merits toward, parents, teacher... toward who one might give a share in good rejoicing.
Much liberating joy in Nyoms undertaking.
