Say "No" to High Pressure Fundraising Tactics

   Oct 21, 2021

We all have a limited amount of money to donate to charity. When we firmly say “no” to charity scammers, this is what allows us to say “yes” to those great nonprofits out there that are working hard to deliver on their programs efficiently and effectively. Don’t respond to the high pressure tactics of expert scammers or charity fundraisers that try to bully you into making a donating decision that is uninformed. It’s not only ok to maintain boundaries by saying “no,” but essential for ensuring that your donation really helps the cause you are trying to support. Watch the video for today’s giving tips from CharityWatch Executive Director, Laurie Styron, during this International Charity Fraud Awareness Week.
