September Update

On September 1st, we issued nearly 330 new ratings, including those for American Red Cross (3-stars), Ducks Unlimited (4-stars), Help Hospitalized Veterans (0-stars), and Bay Area Discovery Museum (0-stars).
We also added 15 new charities to our site. These include Bill of Rights Institute (4-stars), Van Andel Institute (4-stars), and Publicolor (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. While there are concerns about continued decline in funding, a study has shown that volunteering has remained steady.
