The Gift of Giving

Posted by Skye |

Tis the season to give to donations of time, money or assets to charity instead of collecting presents. While this noble effort that brings home the real meaning of this season, you should take the time to check out a website called Charity Navigator. It is an indispensable tool to help you in deciding which charity will be the beneficiary of your good will.

The website is an independent charity evaluator. Through this database, you can find out where your charity dollars are going and get a snapshot of the fiscal picture of your particular charity. It is a great tool to make sure your donation is put to the greatest use.

As a general rule, I avoid UN backed charities based on the low efficiency ratings and non transparency of their charities.
