If you’re able to donate a portion of your stimulus check, there are many ways to give back right now and a great need in our communities. We recommend donating to a registered 501c3 charity to be sure your money is put to good use.
Be careful. This is a time of increased scams and fraud, so be sure you’re donating to a legitimate nonprofit. Use tools like Charity Navigator, GiveWell and GuideStar to check the credibility of organizations you’d like to help or who may already be reaching out to you.
Food banks, COVID-19 community response funds and hospitals are just a few organizations that would benefit from the extra help, but any of your favorite nonprofits will appreciate the donation.
