Avoid Giving to a Scam
Be careful to avoid giving to scams in the aftermath of a disaster. You can verify a nonprofit organization’s status by searching for the organization on sites like Guide Star, the IRS Exempt Organization Select Check tool, the Texas Comptroller Taxable Entity Search, and the Better Business Bureau.
