Giving via Crowdfunding Sites is Risky

In a recent Fortune article, Charity Navigator's President & CEO, Ken Berger acknowledges that crowdfunding sites provide instant gratification to donors who "desire to move money as quickly as possible and get as much money to the victims as possible." But he goes on to point out that "the danger is that the faster the money moves, the greater the chance of abuse and scandal." 

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
