Industry Tips


In an effort to assist you in making a responsible decision, the BBB suggests you follow these guidelines:

1. Use your head as well as your heart. Beware of telephone solicitations. The ultimate telephone solicitation scam can result when callers secure your pledge for a donation to a non-existent charity.

2. If you are tempted to respond to a telephone appeal, request that literature be sent to you along with the organizations latest financial statement BEFORE you make a contribution. This information will allow you to determine how much of your donation actually goes to the cause, how much to fund raising and administrative costs.

3. Beware of "runners" who will be right over to pick up your check.

4. Never make cash donations, always pay by check with the endorsement made out to the charity, not the person collecting.

Bona fide solicitors will welcome the requests, and gladly furnish the information, bogus solicitors will not be able to provide this information or will attempt to talk themselves out of an uncomfortable situation and go on to a less "educated giver".
