Better Business Bureau and The Wise Giving Alliance have teamed up with a website where donors can check the quality of a charity before they give.
"Sadly, there are many out there who would use your goodwill for ill-gotten gains. The Rockford Better Business Bureau says that's why it's important that you take a moment to check out a charity before you write them a check.
"The Wise Giving Alliance (WGA) and the Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois (BBB) charity review operation say the first 'red flag' should be charities that do not disclose requested information to the WGA and BBB. To see which charities do and do not disclose, go to the website give.org."--mystateline.com
