Pay it Forward
There’s no bad way to do good, but there’s definitely a best way. If you’re looking to try your hand at humanitarianism, here are some tips to make sure your goodwill goes to a great place.
Check Out Charity Navigator
Not all non-profits are created equal. To make sure the organization you’re giving to is using your money in the best ways, Charity Navigator grades non-profits according to performance, financial health, accountability and transparency. If you’re really committed to making a sensible social impact, double check your charity on Charity Watch and the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance.
Give Straight to the Source
It may sound surprising, but not everyone who asks for money has the best intentions. To make sure your money makes it into the right hands, always double check your charity’s tax-exempt status with the IRS website, then make your donation directly. Direct donations ensure that your money does most good for the people who really need it.
Protect Your Privacy
Generosity leaves you open to good karma. Unfortunately, it also leaves you open to further solicitation. If you’ve ever given a few bucks to save the whales, you know what that can get you — junk mail, robocalls and requests for more cash. If you’re going to give, make sure it’s worth a few extra phone calls at dinnertime.
