Be careful when giving.....
The holidays are a time of giving, but there are questions you should ask before making a donation, to make sure it‘s being put to good use. CharityNavigator.org is a website that rates nearly 6,000 of the largest charities across America giving them a score from zero to four stars.
The site offers a wealth of information to potential donors, including a list of questions you should ask before giving, tips on how to avoid being scammed, and the tax benefits of donating to a charity.
The goal of Charity Navigator is to compile rating of more than 10 thousand charities across the country.
