Charity


• If possible, pick a cause that you know personally so you know your money will be spent efficiently.

• To help verify that a charity is legitimate, always request literature from the organization.

• Plan your charitable giving, making all decisions at one time each year.

• If you own a small business, decide how much to give and have a committee of employees hand out the money.

• Never give any money to door-to-door solicitors.

• Watch out for phony charities that call and ask you to buy a product at inflated prices.

• Never allow anyone to pressure you into giving to a charity.
