Help funds for people in need of money
The main fear of a potential fundraiser for a charity is considered to be interaction with fraudsters. To avoid meeting adventurers, you should choose an open and “transparent” organization with an excellent reputation.
Funds to support citizens in need of money are usually published in reports on open access to expenditures (salaries, rent, etc.), which should not exceed 1/4 of the total amount of funds from philanthropists.
The distribution of funds includes the following areas:
- Financial or other assistance to citizens in need of support (children, the elderly, etc.) in connection with illness or situations that have led to a difficult financial situation.
- Support for talented children and organizations engaged in scientific activities, which can lead to a breakthrough in socially significant areas through the provision of grants.
The following are involved in the transfer of funds to charities:
- volunteers (business companies and individuals);
- local administration / federal authorities (subsidies, subsidies, etc.);
- third country organizations (targeted funding and grants);
- legitimate business activities and their results;
- dividends (deposit accounts, securities, etc.).
The transfer of finances to a needy citizen is done through a personal meeting (in cash), transfers from bank data or to the account of a medical institution providing treatment.
