Top 10 Charities That Should Raise a Red Flag for Donors

By BBB Wise Giving Alliance, Special for  USDR

Today, BBB Wise Giving Alliance (BBB WGA) released a list of the 10 largest charities (ranked by FY 2014 total contributions) that failed to disclose any of the requested information needed to verify the charity’s trustworthiness. The list includes recognizable charities, including Teach for America, U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, and National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. A charity’s failure to disclose important information relevant to BBB WGA evaluation should be a red flag for donors, and the BBB WGA urges donors to avoid charities that dodge  transparency.

“Transparency is the mark of a well-run charity,” said H. Art Taylor, CEO and President of BBB WGA. “Failure to disclose important operations information demonstrates a complete disregard to the importance of  trust.
