The Associated Press

CONCORD — The New Hampshire National Guard has teamed up with the state attorney general's office to offer guidelines for people who want to make donations to military charities.

Command Sgt. Maj. Lore Ford IV has put out a public service announcement. He said some organizations that provide help for the military community are unable to give large portions of the donations toward charitable purposes, due to high fundraising costs.

He says for some charities, "this means only pennies out of every dollar actually go toward supporting veterans, military members and their families. "

The attorney general's office asks people to do their research on donating to charitable groups.
