During the holiday season, many are inspired to give to those in need. Before you give, we recommend you follow these simple steps to ensure your donation is safe and secure.

  • Do not give your credit card number to a telephone solicitor or someone you don’t know via email or text message. Always contact the charity directly to make sure the request is authentic.
  • Don’t be pressured to make an on-the-spot donation. Most charities will accept your donation at any time. Want more security tips? Visit
