More Stringent Review of Military Charities

Good news for donors who wish to support the troops. The Office of Community Relations recently developed a more stringent vetting process for groups to be listed as a resource in the “Support for Our Troops” section of OurMilitary.mil. All groups listed on the site must provide documentation of their 501 (c) (3) status, complete an application and self certification form, and demonstrate that they have been vetted by at least two independent charity evaluators- such as Charity Navigator.

At Charity Navigator you'll find our own list of charities that support the troops.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
