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.
Charity Navigator is a nonprofit too. We rely on donations. If everyone reading this donated $5, we could keep it online for another year.

Looking for Impact Information?

Charity Navigator is collaborating with GuideStar, GlobalGiving, Classy, and ImpactMatters to display impact-related information for rated nonprofits. However, not all rated nonprofits have provided impact information yet. Each of these partners has supplied Charity Navigator with the impact information they receive directly from nonprofits. Submissions must be made on our partner's websites and we plan to update the display of this information regularly.
