Donating to Charity

Brief

Donating to Charity

A Guide

Abstract

Donating to Charity, based on findings from the nonprofit overhead cost project, encourages individuals to consider their own values and check into the operations of various charities before making charitable contributions. Unlike many guides that emphasize quick-fix financial ratios when determining the donation-worthiness of charities, Donating to Charity indicates that these ratios are frequently problematic and are therefore not useful in making giving decisions. The overhead cost project is a collaboration with the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University.
