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.

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.
