Holiday Giving | Charity Resources

Charity NavigatorWith the economic recession, wallets are tighter than ever. This makes it more difficult for people to donate to charities. For the charities themselves, a recession is often the worst situation to be in because more people need help during the recession while less people are giving to support the organization.

Here are some tips on donating this holiday season.

1) Give to charities that help the less fortunate.

2) Give to charities where the CEO is not overly compensated.

3) Give to organizations where the funds are not used up in administration.
- Great “Slam Dunk” Charities
- High Administrative Cost Charities to Stay Away From

4) Save time and costs by donating online.

5) Remember that in these difficult times, charities are having a difficult time too. So every dollar goes a long way.
