The Impact of CN 2.0

A few weeks ago, we launched CN 2.0, our expanded rating system that measures each charity’s (1) Financial Health and (2) Accountability & Transparency. Since then:
  • Philanthropists of all kinds, including Craig Newmark, have endorsed our expanded rating system. One Charity Navigator user summed it up like this "nice job helping donors make informed choices."

  • Charities have praised the new methodology. For example, Lisa Holzman, Director of Development & Patron Services at the Santa Barbara Symphony Orchestra Association had this to say about the launch of CN 2.0, "thank you to Charity Navigator for giving non-profits the push to be the best they can be!"

  • Many charities have promoted their high-ratings for having a strong commitment to Accountability & Transparency while maintaining Fiscal Strength.Check out this example.

  • Nearly 200 charities have worked to resolve their Accountability & Transparency shortcomings. See which charities.

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 >>
