Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator, is your source for reliable charity data. Our API provides developers access to our high-quality, comprehensive charity data which can be easily integrated into your application or website.
At Charity Navigator we believe that people are amazingly generous and derive great satisfaction from helping others, but are not always sure how to help. So we built an objective rating system that assists givers from every state, and with every type of charitable interest, in finding a charity to support. Our API provides the largest dataset (more than 8,000 charities) on the Financial Health and Accountability & Transparency of US registered public charities providing services in every cause area both domestically and internationally as well as basic data on the remainder of the 1.4 million US nonprofits.
*Applies to rated organizations only.
Integrate the Charity Navigator API into your web application today so your site visitors can find a Charity Navigator rated charity as well as basic information on the remainder of the 1.4 million US nonprofits.
If you anticipate high volume usage of our API (such as more than 5,000 calls/hour), then additional fees may apply.
