Donor Advisories

Charity Navigator launched in 2002, with an evaluation system that graded charities on a 0 to 4-star rating.  By 2010, we were seeing enough serious charges against and questionable reporting by charities and their leadership that we decided it was time to add another designation – the Donor Advisory – as a way to help inform and protect donors.

Charities can receive a Donor Advisory for a variety of reasons such an investigation by the Attorney General, a lawsuit against the charity and an atypical item of a significant nature reported on the Form 990. Donor Advisories replace a charity's rating and typically remain in place for a minimum of a year. In order for a charity's rating to be restored, it  must provide public domain documentation or similarly reliable and accessible information that demonstrates that the issues identified in the Donor Advisory have been resolved. Once the Donor Advisory has been lifted, a record of it will remain in the charity’s ‘Historical’ section of its profile page so that donors have an opportunity to learn about issues the charity previously faced and, if available, how it resolved those issues.

For more information, see How we decide to post a Donor Advisory.
