Charitynavigator.org is an excellent way to review which charities to support. And setting up a Paypal account is well worthwhile for people who want to securely donate online.

I am a PhD student in nonprofit management who also has an MBA. Charity Navigator and similar services (e.g.: Guidestar) serve as important indicators of performance, albeit limited. While Charity Navigator does offer some insights into financial performance, its strict reliance on financial ratios do a disservice to those charities that have higher overhead due to mission or staffing policies. For example, an advocacy group may have comparatively high overhead because of its need for brick and mortar space, land lines to make phone calls, computers to run email campaigns, etc. In addition, organizations making the effort to invest in staff recruitment, retention, and development may have comparatively high administrative costs. However, it is these policies that may allow their staff to leverage remaining dollars to provide better, more reliable service to their constituents than would be possible absent training and said staffing policies. Therefore, I encourage readers to keep in mind the limitations of Charity Navigator as a reference.
