How much of the donation goes to the actual cause?
Verify Verify Verify and research the charity you choose for your donation.
Americans give billions to charities every year. With over 1.5 million charities to select from throughout the country, sometimes the choices can be overwhelming. New Jersey residents generously donate their time and money to thousands of deserving charitable organizations.
The majority of charities are reputable and do their best to use your contribution for worthwhile charitable activities. Some, however, are unscrupulous organizations posing as charities. These “fake charities” use various fund-raising approaches including door-to-door solicitation, canisters, direct mail, radio and television pleas, telemarketing and the Internet.
Many Organizations are Tax Exempt and accept donations, but the donations are not tax deductible.
Know Your Charity
Never give to a charity you know nothing about. Ask for literature and read it. Ask questions. Honest charities encourage you to do so.
