Our fiscal year 2022 annual report outlines the many achievements you helped make possible with your use and support of Charity Navigator.
Initially, Charity Navigator was solely funded by philanthropists John and Marion Dugan. This meant that we were required to register with the IRS as a private foundation and filed several Forms 990-PF. In 2007, we applied to become a public charity to hold ourselves to the same standards as the organizations we rate. Following a five-year interim ruling, we transitioned to a public charity.
