Charity Navigator works to guide intelligent giving. Charity Navigator helps charitable givers make intelligent giving decisions by providing information on over five thousand charities and by evaluating the financial health of each of these charities. Charity Navigator ensures evaluations are widely used by making them easy to understand and available to the public free of charge. By guiding intelligent giving, Charity Navigator aims to advance a more efficient and responsive philanthropic marketplace, in which givers and the charities they support work in tandem to overcome our nation's most persistent challenges.
Charity Navigator aims to provide objective, unbiased analytical information on America's largest charities so you can determine if donating to those charities is a sound decision. And because we do not charge the charities to be evaluated, you can be assured that the information contained on our site is without bias.
Charity Navigator is not affiliated with any of the charities that they rate, so you can trust that the information is 100% objective. Charity Navigator takes proven financial models, formulas, and ratios and applies them unilaterally to every organization in their database. Charity Navigator makes no allowances for anyone, and makes no exceptions. The data is what it is.
Charity Navigator is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization under the Internal Revenue Code and does not accept any contributions from any charities we evaluate.
