English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. donation

    A gift is in the popular, and also in the legal sense that which is voluntarily bestowed without expectation of return or compensation. Gift is now almost always used in the good sense, bribe always in the evil sense to signify payment for a dishonorable service under the semblance of a gift. In Scriptural language gift is often used for bribe. "The king by judgment establisheth the land; but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it." Prov. xxix, 4. A benefaction is a charitable gift, generally of large amount, and viewed as of enduring value, as an endowment for a college. A donation is something, perhaps of great, never of trivial value, given usually on some public ground, as to a cause or to a person representing a cause, but not necessarily of value beyond the immediate present; as, a donation to a pastor. A gratuity is usually something of moderate value and is always given as to an inferior, and as of favor, not of right; as, a gratuity to a waiter. Largess is archaic for a bountiful gratuity, usually to be distributed among many, as among the heralds at ancient tournaments. A present is a gift of friendship, or conciliation, and given as to an equal or a superior; no one's pride is hurt by accepting what is viewed as strictly a present. A boon is a gift that has been desired or craved or perhaps asked, or something freely given that meets some great desire. A grant is commonly considerable in amount and given by public authority; as, a grant of public lands for a college.

How to use donation in a sentence?

  1. Nathan Peterson:

    A police armadillo truck( a modified armored car) followed by about 15 police cars all with their lights on paraded in front of their stand and parked on the side street. I'm getting teary eyed just talking about it, the officers and police chief got out of their cars and talked to the boys and told them how much they supported them. They gave them a donation and took turns buying lemonade. It just made them feel so safe and encouraged.

  2. Toby Neugebauer:

    I sincerely put the money in, and I am sincerely actively looking for ways to invest the money, i always thought that was a long road, and my deal with Ted to White House was a $10 million donation.

  3. Rudy Giuliani:

    Every campaign finance expert, Republican and Democrat, will tell you that if it was for another purpose other than just campaigns, and even if it was for campaign purposes, if it was to save his family, to save embarrassment, it's not a campaign donation, and, second, even if it was a campaign donation, the President reimbursed it fully with a payment of $ 35,000 a month that paid for that and other expenses. No need to go beyond that. Case over.

  4. United States:

    What we will do is provide that donation to the United States government, and they will determine, based upon things like ICU beds, where the course of the epidemic is in the United States.

  5. Heather Mekesa:

    This is not the norm, I'd say 99.99 percent of the time, everything does go well, in the last two decades, this has not occurred in Ohio. This was a very unfortunate and not a great incident to occur but it shouldn't deter people who want to help others through the gift of organ donation.
