Question about charity Organizations

Post by practitioner »

Namaste do you think charity organizations can be trusted? In my country i had seen corrupt people stealing money from those organizations. Or i had seen corrupt president linked to those organizations but is there an exception? I ask because sometimes charity organizations pop up in facebook. I currently only giving to theravada sangha. But i had given money for planting trees in india. I never knew if the money were put to good use. Thank you

Certainly a problem and there is no guarantee. This site is helpful in many cases.

It is the dana or giving attitude that matters. I never give colossal amounts, just small ones and keep an eye out for evidence of good deeds or corruption.
