Often people donate money to charity, but how do you know if your money is going to the cause you intend for it to go towards, and not to those involved in the charity themselves? The Better Business Bureau has released their list of the worst charities in America, so interested donors can check to see if their donated money is being utilized the way they want it to be.
Rich Peters and Brian Hile with the Christian County TRIAD program both appeared as guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning show to discuss these charities. Peters shared with listeners the BBB's top five worst charities.
In some cases, less than one percent of your money is going towards the cause the charity claims to support.
Hile said on the matter potential donors should seek out local charities to donate too, so they know their money stays local.
