It is a misplaced notion to think that you need to be extremely rich in order to be able to donate. Anybody, irrespective of financial status can donate to charity. But the most important thing in all this is that no matter how much you donate, it will not mean a thing if the money does not go down into the right places. There are a number of unscrupulous organizations and you have to be careful not to waste your money funding the wrong place.

A little bit of research will go a long way. Never make the mistake of whipping out your check book at the drop of a hat for any solicitation you receive. In most of these cases, the money never goes to charity. Look for the basics in any organization - they should have working contact numbers and other means of communication. Their financial records have to be in order and transparent. The money that is donated has to be primarily used for the cause and restrictively for administrative purposes.

You can choose to donate to an international non-profit organization or one local one. Irrespective, the place should be able to tell you how much of your money is being used where. There have been donation seekers who retain up to 95 cents on every dollar you give them, making your donation a complete waste of money.

There is a fine line that separates organizations asking for donations. Start-ups will need to use funds for admin expenses and those using very little can sometimes be skimming in other ways. This is something that you will need to look into carefully before making a donation.

There are a number of ways in which you can look for the right kind of organizations. This could be one that your family and friends may support. It could be something that you happened to stumble across and found worthy of a donation. You could also research online for a number of organizations that are well placed and in need of donations. You could also ask around for the lesser known ones who often need all the help they can get.

Always look carefully into an organization's privacy policy to see how they handle your private details. This is extremely important in this day and age of identity theft and other such problems. And finally, when you donate to charity do so generously. You will be spreading more love.
