How do you know your charity is doing a good job?
Though we are great shoppers, we often do not research the causes we give to. We are spending time on-line finding the best price, but many donors give without true knowledge of the charity. Some charities names may sound good and they asked for money, so we give. Before you give, investigate.
There are two websites that analyze the charities for their fiscal responsibility and their true nature of helping the causes they represent. If an organization is spending 50% of their money on administration costs, for example, they may not be the best place to give your donation. Check out: Charitynavigator.org and Guidestar.org
