Did you know that you can donate to your favorite cause online?
You may be able to deduct your charitable contributions from your taxes. (Be sure to consult with you tax advisor.)
However, like the outside world, one needs to be aware when donating online.
Whenever you are donating (or shopping) online, make sure that the site is secure.
You can tell that the website is secure in two ways:
- That the website address in the browser starts with https://. The “s” stands for secure. This means that any information submitted on the page will be encrypted while it travels to the organization.
- That there is a “closed lock” on the browser. This is another indicator that the site is secure.
