Donating with Care 3D Consumer Alert & Checklist

The Nebraska Attorney General applauds the efforts of the Nebraska Broadcasters Association spearheading a day of giving for those in need across our state. Tomorrow, the Nebraska Broadcasters Association is leading a joint initiative to allow Nebraskans an opportunity to contribute in response to recent weather damage and historic flooding.

To help Nebraskans donate with care, the Attorney General’s Office continues to distribute information to reinforce donations reach those in need. A downloadable checklist for giving and a radio 3D Alert PSA both promote giving wisely as well as distinguishing between legitimate charities and scams. These additional tools for citizens are available through Nebraska media and the Attorney General’s website https://protectthegoodlife.nebraska.gov/protect-yourself-response-flooding.

Those who suspect a charity scam should contact the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at https://protectthegoodlife.nebraska.gov or 800-727-6432.
