Many people consider giving to charity this time of year, but not every organization deserves your donations. With some organizations only passing along a few cents of every donated dollar to intended recipients and scammers who work overtime during the holiday season, it can be difficult to make sure your money goes to the right charities. “You should definitely do your own research on an organization before you give them anything,” said Callie Flack, vice president of programs for the North Georgia Community Foundation.
