From all of us at Charity Navigator...


As a charity, our donors are key to making Charity Navigator the free, public guide to giving that millions have come to know and trust. In fact, the majority of our funding comes from individual donors. Your support plays a critical role in sustaining our work!

Charity Navigator makes impactful philanthropy easy and accessible for every donor who wants to make a difference. Last year we:
  • launched Charity Navigator 2.1, an updated rating methodology
  • introduced an enhanced Charity Navigator Advisory System to capture more accurate information about the charities you hear about in the news
  • provided new and updated ratings and evaluations for more than 8,000 charities.

In addition, our Giving Basket has facilitated more than 20 million dollars in charitable giving since its launch in October 2015!

With our new 2021 Plan, we’ve defined many more new and exciting milestones to make our bold vision a reality. Over the next 5 years we will improve our methodology to include impact measurement; substantially increase the number of rated charities; and make new content, tools, and resources available on our website. Excited about what’s coming next? Learn more about our 5 year goals!


We wouldn’t be where we are today without the loyal support of so many donors. Thank you for sharing our vision as a valued member of the Charity Navigator community!
