Research charities thoroughly before making your donations

by John W. Mitchell , Senior Correspondent
From the December 2016 issue of DOTmed HealthCare Business News magazine

HCB News asked Sandra Miniutti, vice president of marketing at Charity Navigator, how they compile their “Top Ten” list, five of which are health care-related and included at the end of this story. She said Charity Navigator rates the financial health, accountability and transparency of over 8,000 charities. The charities that are listed in this story are pulled from the list of 8,000. Specifically, for this list, the charities described must have a 4-star rating, a budget that exceeds $100 million and at least $65 million in net assets. These charities are household names, in part, because of their exceptional financial management, no easy feat considering the scope and size of their operations.

“Charitable givers should feel confident that the charities on this list will put their donations to good use,” said Miniutti. “And beyond this small list, donors can use our free site, www.charitynavigator.org, to find more charities that match their philanthropic passions and that are worthy of their trust and support.” She added that between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, some charities receive half their annual donations.
