Americans are giving to charity more than ever. In light of the most recent natural disasters and the holiday season approaching, there’s a new sense of urgency to charitable giving. But how many of us really know how our donations are being spent – and that they’ll make a difference?

 

Before making donations, donors should do their research to ensure they’re choosing wisely. Evaluators such as Charity Navigator offer charity ratings and in-depth analysis of U.S.-based charities, with criteria including financial management and accountability. Givers should also understand the cause they’re trying to support, and look for charities that effectively address the causes they’re passionate about.

 

I’m chatting with Thomas Tighe, CEO of Direct Relief – one of the nation’s highest rated and most reputable NGOs. He can share tips on charitable giving, explain red flags, suggest questions that people should ask when making a gift, and offer recommendations for charities.
