Are your charity dollars going to the right people in the right place at the right time?
Regardless of how much you’re giving, it’s important to be informed bout the charity to ensure that it is having an impact. While we want to give, it’s always a risk that a charity might not be nearly as charitable as we hoped, or it claimed. To know your time and money is truly going to a good cause, it’s important for the charity to have been investigated, and then monitored, to ensure what they say is what they do. Philanthropy consultants do just this; analyze and monitor charities before providing information about the charity’s operations.
