How To Select A Charity

Charitable Scams To Watch For

« Previous


Unless you are already familiar with the organization, do not donate to a group through a telephone solicitation. Aside from out-and-out scams, telemarketers generally receive a large percentage of each donation. According to a study by Connecticut charity regulators in 2003, nearly 2/3rds of every dollar raised went to the telemarketer. Less than l/3rd of the money actually went to the charity.

On the other hand, some universities, non-profit television stations and other reputable charities do their own telemarketing. If you like the sound of a proposal made on the phone, hang up and call the charity directly.
