Bob Ottenhoff, president and CEO of the Washington-based Center for Disaster Philanthropy, said in an interview Wednesday that it's natural for Schilling and other individuals to want "to be generous and be personally involved."

"But this isn't a moment for amateurs," he said. "I'm urging donors to support those organizations already on the ground and that have the expertise."

Fernando Martinez, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network, which has 700 member organizations, said while Schilling is "well-intentioned," it's best to donate to charities that have been properly vetted and registered with the IRS.
