August Update

On August 1st, we issued more than 450 new ratings, including those for New York Cares (4-stars), The V Foundation (4-stars), The Mobility Project (0-stars), and Vision America (0-stars).

We also added
16 new charities to our site. These include Life for Relief and Development (4-stars), Polaris Project (4-stars), and Sacramento Loaves & Fishes (3-stars).

You can also check out the new Top 10 lists added to the site this month, as well as a few
articles that deal with the ongoing problems charities are facing in these tough economic times. Concerns about funding for nonprofits located in rural areas, as well as declining gifts to colleges are just a few of the issues plaguing charities in today's economy.
