Tips for donating to a charity
Give when you shop
Many charities partner with businesses that agree to donate some amount of the purchase price from sales of items to a worthy cause. That means that you can help while you shop.
Check if the promotion identifies the actual or anticipated amount of the purchase price the charity will receive. Also some businesses, like grocery stores, ask if you want to donate to a charity and have that amount added to your receipt (also called embedded giving). See if the embedded promotion states which specific charity will receive the collected funds.
