How Star-rated organizations can update profiles and ratings

Star-rated organizations are encouraged to create an account for our Star Nonprofit Portal, which is specifically designed for Star-rated organizations. Once registered, the representative can submit or modify data to inform their organization's rating. Each Star-rated organization is permitted to have one dedicated representative per organization.

In addition to the data currently used to rate nonprofits via the Star Rating System, Star-rated organizations are also eligible to earn scores through our Encompass Rating System for the Impact & Results, Leadership & Adaptability, and Culture & Community beacons. Although, at this time, Encompass beacons are not factored into overall Star ratings, the data provided will be published on Charity Navigator profile pages for donors to review and consider when making their giving decisions. In order to submit data and earn these additional beacons, your organization must set up an Encompass Nonprofit Portal account, in addition to your Star Nonprofit Portal account.

How Encompass-rated organizations can update profiles and ratings

Encompass-rated organizations are encouraged to sign up for an Encompass Nonprofit Portal account. Each Encompass-rated organization may have multiple representatives. Once registered, the representative(s) can submit or modify data and view current and anticipated scores for the Impact & Results, Leadership & Adaptability, and Culture & Community beacons.

Please note: data for the Finance & Accountability beacon is currently based on IRS Form 990 data provided to us directly from the IRS. New Form 990s or updated information cannot be submitted by your organization via the nonprofit portal.

Your organization is encouraged to submit all available data in order to receive a published score on individual beacons, which are then summed and weighted to calculate the nonprofit's overall Encompass score. At this time, Leadership & Adaptability or Culture & Community scores on their own will not result in an overall score. Even if your nonprofit is not eligible for an overall Encompass Rating, any data submitted and the corresponding beacon scores will be published on your Charity Navigator profile page for donors to review and consider when making their giving decisions.

How currently unrated organizations can update profiles and earn ratings

Organizations are encouraged to create an Encompass Nonprofit Portal account. Once registered, the representatives can submit data that will update their organization's profile page and potentially earn their organization its first rating via the Encompass Rating System, if it meets the minimum criteria for a rating. Currently, nonprofits must have a Finance & Accountability or an Impact & Results beacon to receive an overall Encompass rating.

Please note: data for the Finance & Accountability beacon is currently based on IRS Form 990 data provided to us directly from the IRS. New Form 990s or updated information cannot be submitted by your organization via the nonprofit portal.

Although the Charity Navigator team has come a long way in increasing the depth and breadth of ratings, we’re but part of the way to fully encompassing every nonprofit within our ratable universe. Thus, despite our best efforts, you may find that your nonprofit is not currently eligible for either a Star or an Encompass rating.
