Local donations make a difference locally


April 26, 2018

In Sanders County, several organizations help residents. The Cancer Network of Sanders County provides funds to Sanders County residents undergoing cancer treatments. Sanders County Veterans Transportation provides free rides to veterans to doctor visits and other appointments.

These are just two of the many organizations in Sanders County run by local volunteers. The money stays in Sanders County and helps Sanders County residents.

It’s tempting to support national charities with many resources and large marketing budgets that fill your mailbox with fancy flyers and free address labels. But it’s important to take a look at where you donations go. Several resources on the Internet will tell you how much of your donation goes to administrative costs and other fees.

Those aren’t volunteers who call and ask for donations for the national organizations. Those are paid employees. But the people who sell raffle tickets at your local grocery store or come to your home or business seeking donations are volunteers.

Know where your money goes. The local organizations deserve your local support.
