Since I've started actively seeking out charities to donate to, instead of waiting to receive requests, I've come in contact with a lot of different charities. Sometimes it's hard to decide where to allocate my donations, but I've found a website that helps! Charity Navigator does a lot of research for you so that you can be an informed donor. Ever wonder how much an organization spends on program or administrative expenses? Ever wonder how much they pay their CEO? Ever wonder how efficient they are in their fundraising? This website helps answer these questions, and rates the charities on their organizational efficiency and their organizational capacity. It also has some very interesting top ten lists (check this one out)! Whether you have one dollar or a million dollars to give, wouldn't you like to feel confident that it went to good use?
