About Charity Navigator

Charity Navigator is the leading charity evaluator in America. Forbes, Business Week, and Kiplinger's Financial Magazine, among others, have profiled Charity Navigator’s unique method of applying data-driven analysis to the charitable sector. Founded in 2001, Charity Navigator has become America’s largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities. Charity Navigator's rating system examines two broad areas of a charity's performance; their Financial Health and their Accountability & Transparency. Their ratings show givers how efficiently they believe a charity will use their support today, how well it has sustained its programs and services over time and their level of commitment to good governance, best practices and openness with information. All of Charity Navigator’s analyses are publically available. It is estimated that last year Charity Navigator influenced approximately $10 billion in charitable gifts.
