Present perfect is formed by combining have/has with the main verb’s past participle form: I have donated. A negation is produced by inserting not after have/has: I have not donated. Questions in present perfect are formulated by starting a sentence with have/has: Has she donated?
Present perfect is used for describing a past action’s effect on the present: He has donated. Now he is sincere. This holds true for events that have just been concluded as well as for events that have not yet occurred.
