The Giving Project
Broadmeadow School
2017 ~ 2018

Fifth graders at Broadmeadow School are participating in a charity project called "The Giving Project." During this project, the classes will research a variety of charities in order to choose which ones they will donate to.
These web pages will help the students make informed choices.

We have a few requirements for these charities; one of these charities will be local, one will benefit children, one will benefit animals and the fourth charity will be of their own choice.

Charity Navigator evaluates organizations and can help you recognize the good ones. They have over 3,200 charities in their database. Enter the name of your charity in the Keyword Search section and then check the ratings. Four stars is exceptional, one star is poor.

Do some investigating. Check in with watchdogs such as BBB Wise Giving Alliance from the Better Business Bureau to be sure your hard earned dollars are reaching those in need. You'll start at the National Charity Report Index where there is an alphabetical listing of the charities. Find your charity, then look through the report to discover how they distribute the funds that they raise.

"JustGive is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to connect people with the charities and causes they care about and to increase overall giving."
