Giving Back, But Wisely

In this time of Thanksgiving, many of us like to give back.

Do your research – search for reviews about your charity, or use Guidestar, BBB Wise Giving alliance, Charity Navigator, or Charity Watch to help your search.

Don’t fall for spoofing, rush into a donation, or pay with a gift card, cash, or wire transfer.

Keep records of your donations.
