Joining us again from the Better Business Bureau is Suzann Bacon Taylor, Director of Special Programs. Everyone knows that the BBB is the place for reference for businesses, but Suzann tells us that the BBB also reviews charities. National charities have been under review since the 1920’s and locally, the BBB has reviewed Colorado charities for about 20 years. Suzann also tells us that this is an extensive review of approximately 20 standards, whereas businesses are rated on 8 standards. If the charity meets all 20 standards, then it is accredited. Learn about some of the red flags to consider when donating to a charity and what are the current leading fraud approaches to be aware of.
