To help ensure that your contributions are going directly to Oklahoma tornado relief efforts, here are a few important tips to consider before donating to any organizations not listed above:

  • Donate only to charities you trust and are familiar with.
  • Do not give your personal information, such as your credit card or bank account number, to any charity that is not reputable.
  • Always check the Better Business Bureau (BBB) Wise Giving Alliance, Charity Watch, GuideStar or Charity Navigator website to make sure the charity to which you?re donating is legitimate.
