Consumer Reports recommends Charity Watch - No kidding.

Posted: Jan 11th, 2018 - 12:37 pm In Reply to: Charity Watch? - You're kidding, right?

They actually recommend checking all 3 of the services they recommend and explain how each arrives at the ratings it gives.

CONSUMER REPORTS: If you're planning to make a charitable donation this holiday season, make sure you YADA-YADA.... Choosing charities by name alone is a mistake some donors make, and their money sometimes ends up going to less-than-worthy groups. Those organizations perhaps spend too much on administrative costs or are outright scammers, says Bennett Weiner, chief operating officer of the charity watchdog BBB Wise Giving Alliance ...

The best course before giving is to check out a charity with Weiner's group and the two other major charity watchdogs, Charity Navigator and Charity Watch.

They can help you feel confident that a group you're donating to deserves your support.

To become accredited by the BBB WISE GIVING ALLIANCE, the watchdog requires charities to spend at least 65 percent of their total expenses on their charitable missions and no more than 35 percent of their contributions on fundraising.

CHARITYWATCH, which uses a letter-grade rating system, gave National Veterans Services Fund an F, and the National Military Family Association an A.
