The Big Day Has Arrived ...

Our Groupon Grassroots campaign launched today on Groupon's site!

Even though we rate more charities than anyone else has ever attempted, our nearly 6,000 charity ratings just aren't enough. Donors and charities beg us everyday to rate additional charities. So, we've partnered with Groupon Grassroots to bring you a deal to increase the number of charities we rate.

We just need 100 people donate $10 to this Groupon Grassroots campaign to have enough funding to rate a new charity. It is critical that at least 100 people support us via this campaign because if we don't reach the “tipping point," then none of the donations will be processed.

But if we exceed the tipping point, then each additional 50 donations of $10 each will add a second new charity rating to our site. That’s a 50% discount on the normal cost of a new charity rating— we know Groupon users love a bargain!

Here’s what you can do to help out:
1. Go to the campaign page to donate and help us reach our goal.
2. Share campaign news and progress on Facebook and Twitter, as well as through email.

Again, thank you for your support!

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 >>
