Many times donors will ask for a charity to be rated that is simply too new or too small to meet our criteria as in the case of the Disabled Veterans National Foundation. And sometimes a charity will meet our criteria, but due to our limited resources, the charity is pending an evaluation, such as is the case with the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity.
So, what do you do if we haven’t yet rated a charity you are considering supporting?
- You can do your own analysis by following the steps outlined in our article “Evaluating Charities Not Currently Rated by Charity Navigator.”
- You can give our advanced search tool a try and see if you can identify other charities, that we do rate, that match your philanthropic interests.
- You can check back later as we are adding more charities to our site every month.
