How to Vet a Charity 

  • Review their history, especially recent growth and successes.
  • Check their online presence, and see how they are regarded by current members, other donors, and watchdogs.
  • Speak to people who have already given money to the charity or have worked with it in the past.
  • Consider volunteering yourself, to see exactly how the charity employs its resources and to get a feel for how they actually enact their mission.
