The safest and easiest ways to donate on Giving Tuesday

Donating on Giving Tuesday is as easy buying on Cyber Monday

Zurbgrugg said in IL, a website has gone up that allows donors to give to their favorite nonprofit or charity organization online at www.ilgive.com, and promoted on social media using the hashtag #ilgive. The special Giving Tuesday activities include the ability for companies to reserve time for employees to spend with Mud Bay kitten ambassadors for a $100 suggested donation. It is celebrated on the Tuesday after Black Friday each November.

The Better Business Bureau urges donors to visit its BBB Wise Giving Alliance to research charities at Give.org. They say watch out for charity name similarities. When charities seek support for the same cause, their names are often similar.

In celebration of Giving Tuesday, Facebook is waiving fees for donations made to nonprofits.




Checking to make sure you are donating to a charity's official website can help to keep your identity safe. PAWS kittens will also be available for individual cuddle sessions for a $10 suggested donation. Don't succumb to pressure to make an immediate giving decision.

Be wary of emotional appeals. "BBB WGA evaluations can give donors insight into a charity's trustworthiness so that their hard-earned dollars go to charities that operate ethically". Charities can demonstrate they are trustworthy by agreeing to in-depth evaluations such as the 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability.

Millions across all 50 states and 98 countries are expected to participate in #GivingTuesday and are likely to surpass last year's record of over $180 million in donations.
