Website Improvements!!!

In the continuous pursuit to create the ideal user experience, we have recently enhanced our website! The changes were prompted by users' feedback on the functionality of certain features. Here are some highlights:

Layout of Search Results

1) Adding a charity to your 'My Charities' list has never been easier. A larger 'Add to My Charities' button is now highly prominent to the left of the charity results that appear after a search. Clicking the button will activate a pop-up that allows you to select which list (if you have more than one), you would like to add that charity to.

2) The process for comparing 2 or more charities on the search results page is now more obvious. Users just need to select the box to the left of the 'Compare' link. Once 2 or more boxes are selected, clicking the 'Compare' link will provide a comparison of the selected charities.

3)The format of the description of the charities in the search results has been modified slightly to include: rating, tag line, location, category and cause.

Improvements to the rating pages

1) New and improved graphs which are easier to read

2) A larger 'Add to My Charities' button located in the upper left-hand section of page to make it easier to add an organization to your lists  

We would like to thank our users for all the feedback. We are continuously taking this feedback into account when evaluating how to enhance the website.

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 >>
