How We Are Moving Ahead


Over the next five years, Charity Navigator will:


Expand Charity Navigator’s evaluations to include impact data
Help charities express the value of their work and help donors assess the impact of their donations, Charity Navigator will expand the information it collects on nonprofits to include, and eventually evaluate impact-related data. 
Empower nonprofits to track and improve performance
Encourage greater giving and full community participation, Charity Navigator will create free tools and resources for charities to use that promote best practices and highlight relative performance in increasingly meaningful and educational formats.
Increase the number of charities evaluated 
Optimize our rating operations and methodologies in order to provide more nonprofit data and ultimately expand the number of organizations that will be eligible for evaluation, as well as evaluated. 
Enhance the user experience
Improve the experience and value provided to users, Charity Navigator will expand and enhance the information, presentation, curation and functionality offered on its website and mobile app.
Increase distribution of Charity Navigator ratings and information via third party platforms
Drive impactful philanthropic decision-making wherever philanthropists and other users are, Charity Navigator will expand the number of platforms that share our charity evaluations and data.

Did You Know We Are a Charity, Too?

If even a third of the 7 million people who visited our site last year had donated a dollar to Charity Navigator, we would comfortably meet our annual budget and be able to do what so many of you ask us to do every day--rate more charities!

With the support of users like you, we are currently investing in staff and technology. This will allow us to improve the search and organizational features of our site, making it easier to find the information that matters most to you. We will also continue to enhance our evaluation system and metrics.

So, whether you're a first time visitor or a long time user, we ask for your help in achieving our goal. Your gift of any size is most deeply appreciated! Thank You!
