Donors expect charities to adhere to ethical standards, but aren’t sure how to confirm legitimacy. As a matter of fact, a Princeton survey found 70% of donors think it’s difficult to tell whether a charity soliciting their donation is legitimate. Therefore, many donors use BBB as a resource. In addition, your affiliation with BBB assists in our investigations to expose fraudulent charities in our local communities, and highlight those ethical charities truly helping people.
