Choosing a charity to donate to can be a difficult process. There are certain organizations the seem charitable but can be a bit misleading with your donations. When donating, it is key to be an intelligent donor. Educate yourself completely on an organization to find out what they are completely about and what they do with your donations. It is also important to give to organizations that you are passionate about or ones that have your support.

In essence, sometimes donating to a charity is more than believing in their cause, it is also believing in their future and their business model. A portion of their proceeds could be going to something else other than what cause they stand for. Always learn extensively about an organization and their cause before giving. It benefits not only you but the relationship between you and the charity.
