The holidays aren't just about buying and receiving gifts, it's also about helping others.

But before giving back, you want to make sure your hard-earned dollars are going to the right place.

Lauren Galley with the Better Business Bureau joined News 3 at Noon on Monday to offer advice on wise giving.

Tips to ensure your contributions are legitimate:

• Watch out for name similarities

• Avoid on the spot donations from unfamiliar organizations

• Be wary of emotional appeals

• Avoid charities that don't disclose

• Rely on standards-based evaluations
