Factors To Consider When Looking For Charities That Allocate Donations Appropriately

By Dennis Wood

People are generous and they like to give funds to help the needy. When you give, you want to ensure that the money given serves the needy and is not misappropriated. You want to give to an organization that is transparent, responsible and runs their affairs in an efficient way. Here is how to find charities that allocate donations properly.

You have to carry out your own investigations about the company. This will help you know whether the organization is legitimate, so that you can give to it. You don't want to start giving to charity only to discover later on that it was not registered as required. So, see what other people say about it and if any complaints have been raised about how they manage their issues.

If you are not sure about which nonprofit to give to you can approach the issue from another perspective. Outline which issues you are passionate about and you would like to support. Then check which nonprofits are the leading ones in this industry. You can then decide to be giving to these organizations. That is off course after you have done your investigations about the organization.

Find an organization that is open about their finances. They should publicly publish their financial records, so that donors can see how the funds given were used. They can publish their records on their website or send the records to donors every year. They should also have qualified accountants managing their finances and they should be audited on a regular basis.

Whenever you are making a decision to give, it should be because you have consciously made this decision. It should not be because you have been made to feel guilty to support the organization. That is why you should avoid making an impromptu or emotional decision. You can opt to either make large donations once in a while or small donations every month.

When you want to give cash, channel your contributions through the organization's website. You can also send them a check through mail. Do not give money over the phone since you cannot be sure whether the person calling you is legitimate or not.

There are watchdog groups that help to keep charities in check. Before you start dealing with any nonprofit organization, go through the database of the watchdog groups to see if the nonprofit is in good standing. Check with a few of the groups just to be sure. These watchdog groups point out any inappropriate behavior that a nonprofit might be engaging in.

There are so many nonprofits and they all run worthy causes. However, not all of them are good. That is why you should do your own due diligence to find one that you should give to. Don't be discouraged from giving because of a few rotten ones.
