Once I learned how the navigate the 990 form, it was very simple to evaluate the charity. I looked at the 990 for the American Foundation for Suicide prevention and it listed how much they eared, what their expenses were, and how much they paid each employee. I think knowing how to read a 990 for is extremely important because it enables you to determine if a charity is reputable and to see if the money they earn is going to the people in need rather than the CEO of the charity.
