There is no way we can remove the idea of giving from the concept of grace. Giving is the essence of grace. God doesn't charge us for His grace; He gives it to us. When we come to Him, by faith in His Son, God doesn't frown and say, "That'll be $2,500, please . . . plus tax!" No, He gives us His forgiveness. He gives us His love. He gives us eternal life with the promise of heaven.
