In the wake of last month's shocking news story about United Mid-Coast Charities' $3.8 million fraud case, we want to give you these five simple tips to help review your favorite nonprofit organization:

Every legitimate charity should provide you with a receipt for your gift, either by email or (preferably) through the postal service. For large organizations, turn around can take a few weeks, so don't panic. A proper receipt should include the amount of your gift, the date of the gift, organization's mailing address and tax ID. It would be nice if they say "thank you" too.

We need better ways to diagnose, treat and cure cancer – and eventually to prevent it. A new Center for Biometric Analysis would give scientists important new tools for understanding human disease. The new facility would combine technicians, technology and operational capacity in a way that has not previously been possible in Maine.
