Pick What’s Important to You
When you consider where you might give your money, think about your top priorities. Are you passionate about the environment or saving a particular type of animal? Has something happened in your personal life that inspires you to donate to a particular cause, such as searching for a cancer cure or mentoring a group of at-risk youth? Also, would you rather give to a cause that has a local impact or a global one? If you’re looking for a worthy local cause, you can do searches by topic, location or both on sites such as Charity Navigator, Charity Watch and the Charities Review Council.
