Five benefits of wealth:

1. One can provide for immediate family members and workers

2. One can provide for friends

3. Through savings and investments one can stave off calamities from fire, flood, kings (governments), thieves, and hateful heirs

4. Oblations: to relatives, guests, the dead, kings, and devas

5. Donations to contemplatives (Sangha) who follow the precepts

(from Anguttara Nikaya 5.41)
