With 2012 fast approaching, you may be looking to make an end of the year donation to a non-profit organization that helps veterans, wounded warriors and military families. There are plenty of organizations out there helping, but Charity Navigator suggests before giving, check out the organization.
The website has a ranking of non-profit groups that Support Our Troops.
The free website rates each organization on its finances such as how much is spent on programs versus administration and fund-raising. The other areas rated are accountability and transparency. The information is clearly presented including graphs and information such as the salary of the CEO.
Here is a partial listing from Charity Navigator of some of the top rated organizations that help military families and veterans.
The Charity Navigator website includes thousands of organizations and has a top 10 list of highly rated military and veterans charities with the most reviews.
There’s also an effective search engine so you can look up a charity and check out its rating, officers and finances before you give.
And GuideStar is another website that rates non-profits, but only partial information is available unless you register.
