    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 more than 225,000 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.
