Charity Navigator helps millions of people take action and support the causes they care about by connecting them to the best charities that align with their passions and values.
Our mission is to make impactful giving easier for all
Since 2001, we've empowered millions of donors by providing free access to data, tools, and resources to guide philanthropic decision-making.
With nearly 200,000 charities rated, our comprehensive ratings shine a light on the cost-effectiveness and overall health of a charity’s programs, including measures of stability, efficiency, and sustainability. The metrics inform donors of not just where their dollars are going but what their dollars are doing.
Like the organizations we rate, we're a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, too. We don't charge the charities we evaluate, ensuring our ratings remain objective. In turn, we depend on the generosity of individuals, foundations, and corporations to fund our programs.
These are the beliefs and principles that guide Charity Navigator and our team.
We dream big and strive toward making the seemingly impossible possible, lifting the sector as we go.
We collaborate internally and externally to accelerate our work and achieve more together.
We stand for equity, diversity, and inclusion within our organization and through our evaluations and guidance.
We assume good intent, leading with trust within our organization and through our work to catalyze giving wherever there is need.
We provide fair, transparent evaluations, and valuable tools to enable a diverse set of donors to find and support an ever-greater number of nonprofits they can trust.
