Charity Navigator relies on donations from users like you.
Dear Reader: Did you know that we never charge charities to be rated on our site? This allows us to maintain independence and conduct unbiased evaluations. If everyone reading this now donated $5, our website would be sustained for years to come. If Charity Navigator is useful to you, take a minute to keep it online and free for another year.
Charity Navigator is a nonprofit too. We rely on donations. If everyone reading this donated $5, we could keep it online for another year.
