Researching charities before donating around holidays
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- During the holiday season, many Americans open up their wallets to support a favorite charity.
But not every penny you give goes to the cause.
Many organizations can use up to 50-percent or more of your financial gift to pay for administration or other costs.
It's important to do a little research, especially if it's a charity you're not familiar with.
This time of year, many scammers pose as charities in order to steal your money.
