"Love" is a Gift that Requires No Wrapping!
Many of our friends will celebrate Christmas this weekend. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy 2017. May you enjoy this time around your loved ones.
As you consider last minute gifts for your family and friends, consider the perfect gift of charity. Donate to an organization that reciprocates the same love and joy you want to bring to the world.
But before you donate, please do your homework! Doing so will help your hard earned money be put to good use. Charity Navigator or GuideStar are helpful resources to find related information for nonprofit organizations.
Consider these steps when you look to donate to any non-profit initiative.
Transparency: Is the organization you want to donate to sharing its financial information publicly? Are their financial statements available for everyone to see? You can find the last 10 years of Child Foundation's tax return forms and financial statements (completed by independent auditors) on our website here.
Evaluation: Has an independent organization evaluated the charity you want to donate to? Child Foundation has received a four-star rating from Charity Navigator(their highest rating), Gold status from GuidStarand "Best" seal of approval from America's Best Charities.
Efficiency: What percent of your donations is applied to its programs? Last year, Child Foundation spent only 3.39% on its administrative and 2.87% of its budget on its marketing projects. This means for every dollar you donated to Child Foundation, 93.47 cents was spent on our children and other humanitarian programs.
As you consider the gift of charity, make an effort to make your gift the most impactful to our global community. To donate, please use our
