BEWARE OF MEDICAL SCAMS DURING COVID-19! 

  • Use a credit card to make your donations. It’s the safest way to donate. Never donate giving out gift card numbers or using a wire transfer. If someone asks you to donate that way, you can be sure it’s a scam. 

  • Always double check the name of the organization where you are sending your donation. Many fake charities pop up during times of national crisis. Often these fake charities use names similar to those of well-known organizations, but with one word different or the name slightly misspelled.

  • Remember to ask lots of questions. What’s the charity’s contact information? Do they have a website and physical address? How much of my donation will go to the program I want to help? How many people will the charity help? If donating locally is important to you, ask how the charity uses your donation in your area? If you get vague answers, move on from this questionable charity. 

  • Beware of donation requests solicited through social media. Just because a friend liked it or shared it doesn’t mean it’s legitimate. Do your own research. Call your friends or contact them offline to ask them about the charity.

  • Confirm your donation is tax deductible. You can use the IRS’s Tax Exemption Organization Search (https://www.irs.gov/charities-non-profits/tax-exempt-organization-search) to verify. Know that donations to individuals are not tax deductible.
