Maury Lewis wants guidance on giving

Maury Lewis writes:
I had a call from Kentucky Professional Firefighters wanting me to give to their Fire Safety drive. Is this a legit thing to give to or do I need to keep my money here in Columbia for our fire fighters? - Maury Lewis
Thanks, Maury Lewis - We always advocate for direct giving, even when organizations themselves engage professional fundraisers. That being said, you might check with the Better Business Bureau, with Charity Navigator, or even call the Kentucky Attorney General for guidance. Maybe local firefighters could give advice. - EW
