Charity Navigator relies on donations from users like you.
Did you know that we never charge charities to be rated on our site? This allows us to maintain independence and conduct unbiased evaluations. We're not salespeople. We're coders, data analysts, and information junkies. We need your help. We're a nonprofit that relies on donations averaging $12. If Charity Navigator is useful to you, please 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.
