CN 2.0 Is Here


Today, Charity Navigator launched a new, two-dimensional rating system that measures each charity's Financial Health and Accountability & Transparency. As a result of the new scoring system (which we call CN 2.0):
  • Half of the nearly 5,500 charities rated by Charity Navigator received new star ratings

  • 30% of the charities’ star rating improved

  • 19% of the charities’ star ratings decreased

  • With the bar set higher, the total number of 4-star charities decreased by 20%.

  • At the same time, charities with ratings of 3 stars (good) or better increased by 8%.

Some of the notable ratings changes include:
