Search for IRS Qualified Charities
The IRS cautions people wishing to make charitable donations to avoid scam artists by following these tips:
- Donate to recognized charities.
- Be wary of phony charities with names or bogus websites that sound or look like those of respected, legitimate organizations. Scammers often send e-mail that steers the recipient to bogus websites that sound as though they are affiliated with legitimate charitable causes.
- Don’t give out personal financial information — such as Social Security numbers or credit card and bank account numbers and passwords — to anyone who solicits a contribution from you. Scam artists may use this information to steal your identity and money.
- Don’t give or send cash. For security and tax record purposes, contribute by check or credit card or another way that provides documentation of the gift.
The IRS website at IRS.gov has a search feature, Exempt Organizations Select Check, that allows people to find legitimate, qualified charities to which donations may be tax-deductible.
