How To Research Before You Donate to Dorian Relief Efforts

Choosing a charity to donate money to can be difficult. But if you’re looking to make a donation to help victims of Hurricane Dorian, there are different websites you can visit to research an organization before you hand over money.

Avoid making a cash donation or wiring money – it’s always safer to pay with a credit card. Once you do, carefully review any statements you get to make sure you are only charged the amount you agree to donate.

Here’s a list of resources to help you do some digging:

Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Check-A-Charity

Charity Navigator

IRS Tax Exempt Organization Search

BBB Wise Giving Alliance
