I donate to 5 or 6 charities monthly. I do not like the site that NCADV goes through. Give Direct. It's like a one-way funnel. It's not user friendly for updating information, looking up transactions, etc. I would definitely be wary of signing up for any more charities that go through their website. It's freaking 2012! There's no excuse for poor website design, unless GiveDIrect just threw that site up and is getting a nice cut off the top. Get it together quickly PLEASE.
