Charity-National Soliciting
When you are asked to contribute to a charity you should do the following things:

1. Call the AG's Office to see if they are registered.

2. If a professional promoter is being used to solicit funds, ask how much of your dollar will go to the charity and how much to pay the promoter. Decide if the split is an acceptable use of your money.

3. Ask for the charity's latest audited financial report so you can determine what percentage of funds raised were used to provide service and what percentage were used to run the organization.

The BBB's Wise Giving Alliance (www.give.org) reports on national charities and determines if they meet 20 voluntary standards on matters such as charity finances, appeals and governance. It does not evaluate the worthiness of a charitable program.
