Question

I’ve been following the Lawrence Journal-World’s recent investigation into the Purple Heart Veterans Foundation, and I was wondering how I can check into a charity that I give money to?

Answer

The nonprofit group GuideStar collects and posts online the IRS-required tax forms for nonprofits, known as 990 forms. The forms include an array of information about an organization, such as salaries, funds raised and program expenses. Anyone can search for the forms at guidestar.org after registering for a free account.
