A long time ago, people went to a temple to receive spiritual teachings. They spent time doing work around the temple before they could receive their teaching.
The rare people who had money would make donations in money, and those with more food would provide food for the temple, otherwise, the temple would not survive.
Today, I don't handle a temple as in old times. But as a spiritual teacher, spiritual coach and yoga instructor, I still invest my time and infrastructures to provide these services. These days, receiving a few goats, or doing someone else's dishes, is somewhat inappropriate to our culture. Today, we use money as an exchange.
It is important to give a donation to your teacher in recognition of the teaching received. However, if giving a certain amount affects you, then it is too much. If you find it insignificant, it is not enough. It all depends on the effect it has on you.
