This month, Charity Navigator is celebrating its birthday! Our service has helped millions of donors, like you, give smarter by providing you with the charity evaluations, giving tips, and other tools you need to make intelligent giving decisions. If we’ve helped you identify charities to trust and support, then please join us in celebrating by giving a gift to Charity Navigator today.
Celebrity endorsements help charities increase awareness of their endeavors and thus stimulate more donations. However, just because your favorite super-star supports a charity doesn't mean the charity is well-run and worthy of a contribution from you. Check out how we rate these 10 charities which are closely aligned, in some cases even named for, the celebrities that founded or support them.
