Find Great Charities
Which Charity Do I Donate to?
With over 1.3 million charitable organizations in the United States, finding a charity to donate to can be challenging.
Choosing where to donate and how to donate is important; you want your charitable gift to make an impact. GreatNonprofits reviews help you identify the organizations in your community that are making a difference on the issues you care about.
What Do I Donate and How Much?
There are a number of ways to make charitable contributions. The National Center for Charitable Statistics estimates that individual donors gave more than $211 billion to charities in 2010.
You may want to give money to a charity, but car donations, clothing donations, furniture donations, and other in-kind charitable gifts are also important to charities. A donation of any amount helps reduce the amount of time the organization spends fundraising and increases the amount of time they can spend on their mission.
