He asked me a simple question:
-- Can you tell me more about this institution?
He had a sensible attitude in ask me about it, because we must always be alerts about various institutions of charities. We should take note about how institutions deal with money or donations, inclusive, how much paid its directors, officers, employees and his staffs. How much was collected in money and donations and how many resources are effectively applied in charity and help?
We should also evaluate the financial balances, which should always be updated. The financial account should be very transparent, so that everyone else can understand it and have a good trial.
There are some websites of companies that oversee institutions, providing ratings and we can do queries easily.
I recommend to everyone read carefully an interesting article on the topic above, in the link below will find more information.
