Sometimes, I donate to the "underserved" charities. They are smaller and less well-known than the larger causes. It might mean that their staff and volunteers spend more time on serving their targeted audience and might not have the expertise to maintain the high standards of reporting as the bigger guys. But looking at what they do, I would still want to support them (as a volunteer and with modest financial donations).

I will donate what is practical for the charitable organisation eg groceries and other stuff which they could use.

Was quite hesitant about donating money as it could be misused if it ends up into the wrong hands.

It's a pity that some mismanaged charities have made people suspicious. I guess if you get to know a particular charity by getting involved, or you know some people who work there and have some confidence in them, it will give you more peace of mind. The thing is, not all charities need gifts in kind, and sometimes such gifts may not be exactly what they need at that point in time.

Donations need not be in the form of cash though is the easiest and most convenient. I would like to donate my time, knowledge or effort
