Tithing and Charitable Donations
I know what tithing is, but I'm not really sure how it works, but would charitable donations qualify? What are the best charaties to donate to? I don't trust many charaties because you never really know where your money goes. If I donate, I like to be sure that the money I give goes towards helping people in need and not to fundraising or to some rich person's pocket. So picking a charity to donate to is difficult. Should we inquire of the Lord about this and ask Him where our gifts would be best put to use?

I share a lot of what I have learned about giving in this teaching here:
I hope this helps answer some of your questions.
