What Make a Charity Good?

#good charity

Are you wondering what makes a charity good? You may have heard charities being discussed in the media or perhaps you are thinking of making a donation or maybe you are considering volunteering?

Before you decide whether or not to do any of the above you may want to ask yourself the following questions;

  • What problem is the charity trying to solve?
  • Does the charity’s approach to solving that problem make sense?
  • What has the charity achieved to date?
  • Is the charity signed up to any professional standards?
  • Does the charity make information on its finances publicly available?

These questions were posed to Global Schoolroom on behalf of and we’ve created a document just to answer these questions that you might have.
