Charity Navigator relies on donations from users like you.
Dear Charity Navigator Users: To protect our independence, we'll never run ads. We take no fees from the charities rated on our site. Charity Navigator relies on donations averaging $15. Now is the time we ask for your help. If everyone reading this now gave $5, our fundraiser would be done today. We're a small nonprofit that relies on donations from donors like you. If Charity Navigator is useful to you, take a minute to keep it online and free for another year. Thank you.
Dear Readers: Did you know that Charity Navigator is a nonprofit too? We never charge users or nonprofits to use our site. We rely on donations from users like you. If everyone gave $5, we could keep it online and free for another year. Please help today.
