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.
