    Powered by Charity Navigator’s Ratings API, this partnership will increase transparency and equip Carefull users with the tools they need to make informed giving decisions. 



    May 15, 2024 — New York, NY – Charity Navigator, the nation's largest and most influential nonprofit evaluator, has partnered with Carefull, an all-in-one financial safety service that organizes and protects the everyday finances of seniors. 


    Carefull is leveraging Charity Navigator’s powerful new API, harnessing 225,000+ charity ratings and 20,000+ alerts to enhance its charitable giving feature, which is part of Carefull’s comprehensive account, credit, and identity monitoring. When donating, Carefull users get alerts about organizations that have earned two stars and below. This partnership will help seniors avoid charity scams and hidden recurring donations, keep track of their giving, and help them feel confident that their donations are going to causes that truly make a difference.


    “By integrating our trusted charity ratings, we empower donors to make more informed and impactful giving decisions. Together, we're ensuring that every donation not only supports our cherished seniors but also drives meaningful change in communities across the nation,” says Laura Andes, Chief Program Officer at Charity Navigator. 


    Carefull guards against outside risks such as scams and fraud and catches inside risks such as everyday money mistakes, missed bills, and redundant services to stop small issues from becoming big problems. Each member is covered by $1 million of identity theft insurance.


    “In a world where each day sees a new scam, we’re thrilled to partner with Charity Navigator to better protect tens of millions of dollars in charitable giving by Carefull members. Charity Navigator’s data helps us bring insight and transparency to each and every donation, so our customers can make better decisions about where to give and ensure their hard-earned dollars are going to the causes they intend,” says Max Goldman, Co-CEO and Founder at Carefull.
