How to donate wisely.

How to donate wisely and avoid scams

  1. Look up a charity’s report & ratings: • give.org • guidestar.org • charitywatch.org • charitynavigator.org
  2. Never pay by gift card or wire transfer. Credit card and check are safer.
  3. Watch out for names that only look like well-known charities.
  4. Search the charity name online. Do people say it’s a scam?
  5. Ask how much of your donation goes to the program you want to support.
  6. Donating online? Be sure where that money is going.
