Registered users can access Charity Navigator's powerful Sector Analysis Tool. This feature allows you to define a sector as broadly or narrowly as you like --- by types of charities (Category and Cause), and by location (Region and State) --- and learn more about how that group of charities performs financially. Each screen shows the top and bottom 5 charities in the sector and the sector's average scores. Many charities and their Boards of Directors use the tool to benchmark their CEO's compensation. Donors use it to better understand how specific charities stack up against their peers.
