Make your charitable donations go further

Money makes the world go round, but how well is your money working for you? April is Financial Literacy Month, the month where we not only spring clean our physical homes, but our financial homes too!

One aspect of finance is donating to charitable organizations. Sometimes, giving money feels like an iffy proposition. Is your money going to really go to people in need or is it going to buy the director a new sports car? To ally those fears, check out http://www.charitynavigator.org/.

Charitynavigator.org, a site that rates non-profit charitable organizations, will give you the hard financial numbers on your charity of choice including an easy to understand star system. The more stars, the better your organization is at fulfilling its stated goals. Check it out today and feel better when you donate.

(I would be remiss in noting that if you want to give to an organization where 100% of our donations go to the organization, you can’t do better than our Friends of Upper Dublin Public Library. They’re all volunteers and everything they raise through our book sale, our jewelry sale and other programs goes to support UDPL and all our programs!)
