ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Better Business Bureau wants to make sure you give wisely this holiday season.

They said that it's important to research a charity before you donate.

The BBB also said to beware of names similar to well known charities, watch out for groups that don't disclose information to the Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance and be cautious of fake charity websites asking for personal information. 

"Be sure you know who you're actually giving your money too. Be sure that the organization is legit, that their mission is clear and complete in regards to what they are going to do with the money that you donate," said President and CEO of the BBB Leonard Crain.
