The charity of money is included in gyan daan. When money is used to print books that impart knowledge, it is gyan daan. Yes, money is needed even to donate medicine. Money is needed for everything, but a donation of money for gyan daan is the highest.

How Much To Donate To Charity?

 A 'surplus' is when you give and you do not have to worry about it the next day. Only give if you think that you will not encounter any financial difficulties for the following six months or so, otherwise do not give. 

Donate whatever excess money you have towards a charitable cause because the money that is sitting in the bank will be of no benefit to you. If you donate your money you will not encounter any obstacles; if you give it to charity, it will be credited to your account (karmic account).
