Wanting to give donations in the wake of a disaster is admirable. However, with so many regions of the United States having been devastated by a natural disaster in recent weeks, there are dozens of illegitimate charities out there looking to take advantage of your generosity and compassion.
With resources like web pages and applications that allow donations to be collected via electronic payment, it’s easier than ever for fake charities and other bogus relief efforts to look, sound and feel legitimate. Here’s how to make sure that your donations are going to reach those in need.
Would you like to donate to a disaster fund? FEMA has a website that tells you how you can volunteer and/or donate responsibly. The National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster is also a great resource to find out how you can help without being scammed!
