In an effort to be a role model of transparency and accountability regarding our effectiveness and results, we present the following information to our users. For definitions of the various terms used below, we refer you to the Methodology portion of our site.
Our Goals and Strategies
Charity Navigator is the largest and most utilized charity evaluator in America and is well positioned to become the one-stop source for those interested in making a wise social investment. The following resources will enable us to reach our goals:
Our Performance Measures
To ensure that we remain focused on our goals, we have created a dashboard that is regularly updated by our staff and reviewed by our Board of Directors. The dashboard contains information about our benchmarks for measuring our performance.
Charity Navigator's Charting Impact Report (a standard framework for creating reports that enable stakeholders to easily and clearly understand the objectives, benchmarks for progress, and impact of nonprofits) is accessible on the Chariting Impact website here.
If even a third of the 7 million people who visited our site last year had donated a dollar to Charity Navigator, we would comfortably meet our annual budget and be able to do what so many of you ask us to do every day--rate more charities!
With the support of users like you, we are currently investing in staff and technology. This will allow us to improve the search and organizational features of our site, making it easier to find the information that matters most to you. We will also continue to enhance our evaluation system and metrics.
So, whether you're a first time visitor or a long time user, we ask for your help in achieving our goal. Your gift of any size is most deeply appreciated! Thank You!
