How to Choose a Charity

1. Do your research: What is the charity’s purpose? Does its mission meet your areas of concern/interest? Keep in mind that it’s always best to choose a local organization where your efforts have the ability to make a significant impact.

2. Ask questions: Don’t hesitate to ask questions to gain a better understanding of the organization’s profits and expenses. Be sure that the charity has a 501(c)(3) rating with the IRS. If not, it is not a non-profit organization.

3. Evaluate: Review the website closely. Also, look online for complaints, lawsuits, or derogatory news articles.

4. Get Involved: Don’t just join the cause, fight for the cause. Participate in the organization’s events, social media, and educate others on what your charity has to offer.
