Giving and charitable donations

Greetings. I am from an Irish Catholic background and many years ago I had a conversation with a Jewish colleague who explained a spiritual hierarchy that exists in relation to giving.

In short he explained that the purest form of charity is that made without any recognition of the donor. A lesser form of giving involves substantial praise or recognition for the donor.

This has stuck in my mind as a beautiful approach to helping fellow human travellers.

If anyone could provide me with a more fulsome explanation as to where this approach comes from I would be most appreciative.
