INDIANAPOLIS — When disaster strikes, most people want to help.
Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller issued a statement Friday, May 24, telling people to be careful when donating to help Oklahoma tornado victims.
Zoeller advised following these steps when asked for a donation:
Ask for details of how your donation will be used.
Watch for charities with names that sound similar to respected organizations.
Donate with a check, and make checks out to the organization, not to a specific person.
The Attorney General’s website lists organizations that have information on charities, including the Better Business Bureau and Charity Navigator.
