Press Highlights


“Charity Navigator is one of the more influential charity assessment organizations.”

“Charity Navigator is America’s largest, independent charity evaluator that will help you find charities you can trust.” ~ Valerie Coleman Morris, former business anchor for CNN and author

“[Charity Navigator] is the Michelin guide to aid organizations.”

“Summaries offered by Charity Navigator for thousands of organizations are the best I’ve found. You’ll find a concise mission statement, efficiency measures, scope and size, revenue and expenses, and management information in a clear and easy-to-use format. I especially like the section giving comparative performance of similar charities. There are tools to help find and pick charities, and the site gives its own “star” rating system on key categories.”

Charity Navigator is “a leading charity evaluator and donor advocacy group... I should reemphasize [Charity Navigator] is an advocacy group for donors.”

“Consider it [Charity Navigator] the Consumer Reports of the nonprofit world.”
