OnPoint on WACH Fox: Making your charitable giving count

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WACH) - The holiday season is the season of giving for a lot of reasons. So on this week's edition of OnPoint on WACH Fox we look at how you can make sure you charitable giving makes a major difference.

At the end of the year, many give to organizations to help people in need and tend to make those end-of-year giving decisions by December 31 to qualify for tax deductions in the calendar year.

Most people want their donations to do the most good for the causes they care about.

Every year the South Carolina Secretary of State’s Of?ce compiles its Scrooges and Angels List to encourage charitable givers to educate themselves about various charities by learning how the organizations are spending their collections.

We'll show you who's on the list, how you can research how charities spend their money and how you can report a charity if you have questions about whether they are legitimate.

This week, we'll also introduce you to to a group of local pastors contributing in a special way and how you can be a part of their effort.
