Among other eligibility criteria, Charity Navigator only rates nonprofits that have filed at least 7 years of the full Form 990 with the IRS. Charity Navigator has yet to file 7 years of full Form 990s with the IRS due to the fact that prior to being a 501(c) (3) public charity it functioned as a Private Foundation. Charity Navigator filed its first Form 990 in fiscal year 2012. As an organization committed to transparency and accountability, we felt it was worthwhile to present our own  financial, accountability and transparency metrics for others to review. 

This overview was published 10/01/2016 and includes data from FY2015, the most recent 990 received at that time.
