Quote For A Cause
Here are some basic charitable giving tips courtesy of the Better Business Bureau (BBB):
1. Get the charity’s exact legal name. There are thousands of charities in existence, and mistaken identity is a common problem.
2. Resist pressure to give right on the spot, whether on the telephone or in person.
3. Be cautious of appeals that create sadness. The question to answer is, “What the charity is doing to help?”
4. Get specific details… For example, if the charity says it’s helping the poor – ask how and where it is doing it.
5. Check the Internet to learn more. A charity’s mission, program and finances should be available on its website.
6. Check about your state’s charity regulations. In many states, charities are required to register, usually with the office of the attorney general, before soliciting donations.
7. Not every organization seeking donations is tax exempt as a charity – consider checking an organization’s legal tax status.
