Double Your Impact on Cancer With A Challenge Match

Hi everyone,

We're starting off our fall fundraising drive with a unique and exciting challenge: a local family will double the amount we raise this month, up to $20,000!

In the wake of last month's shocking news story about United Mid-Coast Charities' $3.8 million fraud case, we want to give you these five simple tips to help review your favorite nonprofit organization:

1. Check, Please

Every legitimate charity should provide you with a receipt for your gift, either by email or (preferably) through the postal service. For large organizations, turn around can take a few weeks, so don't panic. A proper receipt should include the amount of your gift, the date of the gift, organization's mailing address and tax ID. It would be nice if they say "thank you" too.
