Smart Giving This Holiday Season

Smart Giving This Holiday Season

 

In this season of giving, here are some tips from the BBB Wise Giving Alliance:

1 . Consider more than finances.

How much money a charity spends on the actual cause - as compared to how much goes toward fundraising and administration - is an important factor, but it's not the whole story. A charity with impressive financial ratios could have other significant problems such as insufficient transparency, inadequate board activity and inaccurate appeals.

2. Research before you give.
