The website/firm you are thinking of is http://www.charitynavigator.org
Many “charities” aren’t. Even well known ones. Agreed on the United Way part. They really pissed off a lot of people. After my own research it looks to me as local church groups and the Salvation Army are about the only ones worth bothering with.
I've heard similar stories about the Korean War.
I was told that you could specify what organization you want your donation to go to with the United Way. A UW friend said, “No, if you specify, they’ll THINK about giving to that group.” Boy Scouts always seem to get left out, so UW can kiss my grits.
