Investigate organizations before making donation

I give money/gifts to many nonprofits which I know give a large majority to the people/animals that really need it. However, I don’t give to organizations that a lot of the money goes to administrative costs.

In regard to an editorial on Dec. 20 titled “Giving a special joy,” the United Way tries to keep its administrative costs to a minimum.

I do not, however, support organizations that discriminate against people or organizations.

I suggest readers investigate organizations before donating hard-earned money.
