The Best Charities to Give to In the Wake of Hurricanes Harvey & Irma
It’s not too late to help Texas and Florida residents recover from hurricanes Harvey and Irma. But how do you make sure you’ve picked the right charity when donating money, food, clothing, or other items?
Indeed, not all charities are created equal. Charity Navigator, a nonprofit that has independently rated over 8,000 charities, compiled a list of some of the best organizations to donate to in the wake of Harvey and Irma. Its team considers several factors when giving a charity a score out of 100. These include program expenses (e.g. how much of the donations go straight to victims) and transparency (e.g. audited financials prepared by an independent accountant).
Here are some of the charities that Charity Navigator recommends for Hurricane Harvey and Irma, along with their scores out of 100.
