[Infographic] A Simple Guide to Great Giving

November 29, 2014

'Tis the season to give. But as the infographic below reminds us, there's giving — and there is Great Giving. With #GivingTuesday right around the corner, here are some questions you should ask  when selecting a charity to support are:

  • How much can I afford to give?
  • How will my donation be used?
  • Is my charity currently financially sound?
  • Am I donating through a middleman or giving platform?
  • Is the charity I support a registered non-profit?
  • Is the administrative compensation for my charity reasonable?


So this year on December 2, spend a minute or three thinking about what you can do to maximize the impact of your generosity. And check out this page for more resources designed to help you make sure all your giving is great — this month and throughout the year.
