We all get so many requests for charitable contributions, however not all such organizations are operated effectively. I recently discovered www.charitynavigator.org, a non-profit organization that screens charities for accountability and transparency. One of the most efficient charities in my experience was the United States Fund Children First.   They spend over 90% of their funds on actual program expenses, comparing to Paralyzed Veterans of America (only 32%), National Foundation for Cancer Research (45%), Wounded Warrior Project (57%), Ronald McDonald House (60%).

Happily donated today to UNICEF, knowing that my contribution will actually help children of Nepal. Please consider doing same at http://www.unicefusa.org or screen a charity of your choice prior to making a contribution.
