Americans are giving to charity more than ever. In light of the most recent natural disasters and the holiday season approaching, there’s a new sense of urgency to charitable giving. But how many of us really know how our donations are being spent – and that they’ll make a difference?

Givers should also understand the cause they’re trying to support, and look for charities that effectively address the causes they’re passionate about.
