Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a time to remember and honor those who have died serving our country. If you choose to celebrate Monday's holiday with a donation, then consider one of these highly-rated charities:

Freedom Alliance
Fisher House Foundation
National Military Family Association
Disabled American Veterans Charitable Service Trust
Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation

And remember, as we told you in our blog about the FTC's Operation False Charity Sweep, not all military and veterans charities are good investments. Be sure to do your homework when giving to these groups. To help you, we've published a list of charities - some worth funding and some worth avoiding - that support our troops.

Each day, based on a particular holiday or event (like Memorial Day), Charity Navigator’s experts select 4-5 highly-rated charities to highlight.
