It's been another excellent year here at Charity Navigator! These are a few of the highlights of 2015 from America's Largest Charity Evaluator:
- In August, we were delighted to announce the appointment of new president and chief executive officer Michael Thatcher. Mr. Thatcher joins Charity Navigator with a successful track record as a technology executive, a reputation for achieving desired results, and a passion for using technology as a tool to advance social good.
- Including Michael, we increased our overall staff size by 36%.
- We added more functionality to the My Charities feature of the site by including personalized alerts for ratings changes of the charities you follow.
- In October, we launched the all-new Giving Basket, a safe, easy and convenient way to support any charity, all from Charity Navigator's website.
- In 2015, we updated ratings for over 8,000 charities, and we collected Results Reporting data for 3,000 charities.
- We had nearly 20% more visits to our site this year, for a record number of 8.8 million!
