New Features

Taking advantage of Google's free search API, we've begun to display search results for news, videos, and blogs about the charities we evaluate. We're rolling it out selectively to ensure that the results are relevant but here are examples of the new "News" tab in action: Feeding America and AmeriCares.

In addition to the newsfeed, we just launched a feature called "My Requests" for registered users. For years we've accepted suggestions for charities to evaluate but didn't have a mechanism to effectively communicate the status of those requests back to the user. Now, registered users see a link to "My Requests" on the "My Charities" page. Clicking that link will display a list of all the requests submitted by that user since we started accepting suggestions on the site.
