Any charities that were supported by the companies I worked for were local or at least national but in a way that the locality benefited too. This helped in two ways. First you knew where the money was going and secondly it enhanced the company's profile locally. Another point is that both the local community and the employees can see where the money is going.

Money given to the big international charities, deserving though they may or may not be often get lost in all the noise.

Of course I must admit bias, much preferring local charities to international which all too often seem a money pit with little benefit overall.
