Hi Grace,

I share your concerns but I still think giving to charities is good for the soul. Who you give to and the amount you give is up to you.

Several times over the years I’ve stopped giving to ‘nagging’ charities who ignore my simple request as in “Here’s the deal, this is what I’m giving. All you have to do is not pester me.” Why is that so hard to understand?

Another worry is that charities are increasingly “businessed up”. No, it’s not a business it’s a charity. You shouldn’t be making a big salary and taking money out of the charity. If you want to make big money, go get a job. And ‘chuggers’ on commission – aarghhh!

In the UK you can validate a charity here:

https://register-of-charities.charitycommission.gov.uk/charity-search

If you search e.g. for ‘wateraid’ it’ll give you a profile of among other things, how it spends its money, how much is used in ‘admin’ and salaries etc. Quite a useful resource.
