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.
