Giving Wisely

Publication date: 
November, 2014

The Michigan Nonprofit Association, Council of Michigan Foundations, Michigan Association of United Ways, and Attorney General Bill Schuette have unveiled a helpful publication designed to provide Michigan donors with guidance for making wise donations to charities.  The free Giving Wisely brochure provides advice to anyone considering a donation, informs Michigan citizens how best to avoid scams when making their charitable contributions, and offers suggestions for what questions to ask to ensure their gift will go towards programming instead of administrative costs.  Giving Wisely also reminds citizens to carefully consider which charities to financially support and encourages donating time and talents to engage with the charity's work directly.
