Hadhrat Masih Maud (Alais Salaam) states "I don't expect that anyone who spends his wealth in these times of need, will see any reduction in his wealth in any way, because of this expense. Hence one should participate with complete sincerity, enthusiasm, and effort, having trust in Allah Ta'ala that this is the time of service. Thereafter will come a time, where spending even a mountain of gold won't be equal to spending a single rupee in today's time."

Zakat (Obligatory Alms with prescribed rate)

The concept of Zakat was not totally new to Islam; similar alms giving had been enjoined upon the Israelites and the Christians as well. In Islam, the Zakat takes the form of a prescribed contribution based on a person's wealth and income. The rate of contribution varies with the kind of property owned but, on an average, works out to two and one half percent of the total value.
The proceeds of Zakat are supposed to be devoted towards:

Relieving poverty and distress Helping those in debt
Providing comfort and convenience for travelers Providing stipends for scholarships
Providing ransom for prisoners of war   Propagation of Islam. 
Meeting the expenses for the collection of Zakat Other things beneficial for the society
