Here’s how to make sure the max amount of your donation gets to those in need.

BEST: WE Charity Donate Now

The recipient of the first-ever Good Housekeeping Humanitarian Seal, this non-profit works tirelessly on many global programs. Its WE Villages initiative provides clean water, education and food, and empowers women worldwide with financial independence. WE Schools educates young Americans on important social issues, providing them with tools to launch their own service projects. Those service-supporting students can also earn tickets to WE Day, a celeb-packed concert dedicated to championing and inspiring others to do good (that’s Prince Harry shaking hands with WE Day founder Craig Kielburger at a recent event). For the GH Humanitarian Seal, the Good Housekeeping Institute evaluated WE on a robust set of criteria (including a review on Charity Navigator) to ensure it aligned with Good Housekeeping’s mission and beliefs in terms of impact, financial and administrative tacts, the value it offers and much more.
