Elephant sanctuary listed as most trustworthy charity in Tennessee
Monies donated to charities are done so with the implicit trust that the funds given will be dispersed to those in need.
But all too often, many kind-hearted individuals are crestfallen when discovering their hard-earned dollars have not been used for the stated purpose, but instead to purchase expensive homes, vehicles and vacation trips for top executives in the so-called charity.
In response, the Federal Trade Commission has teamed up with 70 agencies throughout the U.S. to combat charity scams.
Following their lead, Business.org has created a website based on these investigations in order to provide a detailed listing of the most trustworthy charities in each state.
