Verify the Recipient

Verify the Fundraising Platform

Verify the trustworthiness of the website or platform being used to raise funds.

Then, Verify Again

You should understand how the website or platform verifies an individual or charity that is raising funds for before contributing to a cause. The best crowdfunding platforms will have reasonable means in place to ensure the veracity of fundraising efforts.

Consider Specialization

Some crowdfunding sites specialize in particular areas like legal expenses, medical bills, and school projects. If a platform has specific experience in a particular area, the verification techniques and ability spot problems may be better. Whereas, a platform that allows any form of crowdfunding request may not have the same capability.

Double-check Charities

Websites and projects created for crowdfunding by tax-exempt charities provide additional ways to verify them. For example, visit the "About" page of the charity's website. Or, you may confirm registration of the charity or the crowdfunding project with state government agencies. Also, look for ratings and information on the charity from unbiased third-party sources.

Request Updates

According to the Better Business Bureau, projects providing progress updates such as expenditures or accomplishments help assure the legitimacy of an organization or individual. Details on how updates will be provides should be given in the listing for the project.

Know the Fine Print

The terms on crowdfunding websites and platforms will vary. You are responsible to know and understand their refund policies, privacy policies, administrative charges, fees, and other conditions.
