Industry Tips

Ten Tips for Better Giving

1. Watch out for similar names. As there are many charities raising funds for similar causes, some charity names sound the same. Be sure to look at the names carefully, because the charity soliciting you may not be the one you have in mind.

2. Do not be pressured to make an immediate gift. Be wary of solicitors that demand an "on the spot" donation. Charities should welcome your gift whenever you want to send it.

3. Question vague appeals. Appeals should clearly identify the charity's programs. Watch out for appeals that are strong on identifying a problem, but weak in describing what the charity specifically intends to do about it.

4. Do not give out personal information to phone solicitors. Don't give out credit card numbers, checking account numbers, or any other personal information to unknown telephone solicitors.

5. Do not give cash. Write out a check to the charity's full official name, not to an individual or third party that may be collecting the donation.

6. Keep records of your donations (receipts, canceled checks, and bank statements) so you can document your charitable giving at tax time.

7. If you want a deduction, make sure the organization is a charity. There are many different types of soliciting non-profit organizations. Most appeals will indicate if the organization is eligible to receive gifts deductible as charitable donations.

8. Don't hesitate to ask the charity for written information on its programs and finances. This tip can be particularly helpful to phone appeals from charities that interest you.

9. Check out the organization with the local charity registration office (usually a division of the state attorney general's office) Remember that state registration does not mean "approval", it means the group has filed the appropriate forms.

10. Report bad practices. Contact your Better Business Bureau and your state's attorney general's office about solicitation problems.
