With so many great organizations to support, how do you pick just one and still make a lasting impact? There are a few things to consider before writing that check or volunteering.
First, check the charity’s GuideStar rating, which should give you an idea about how they operate. Look for an organization that focuses on a mission that meets your passion. Be sure to ask questions on how they measure success and what type of future they envision.
Finding your inner philanthropist is simple as long as you and the charity are transparent. Your time and talent matter; choose wisely.
