End of the year charitable gifts

Written on November 18th, 2010 by Jamesno shouts

As we approach the holidays, many may be looking to make charitable gifts including yours truly.  (okay you may be doing it for tax purposes, but whatever your motive – good for you!).

One of the challenges is finding a worthy organization to contribute to.  If you are considering making a donation but have concerns about how much of the money actually goes to the underlying cause, get a report card prior to donating.

These two websites screen charities and rate their “stewardship”:  www.give.org   and www.charitynavigator.org

Happy Holidays!
