Charity Navigator's 10th Annual Metro Market Study

This month, we published our 10th Metro Market Study. In this report, we analyze differences in the financial, accountability and transparency practices of charities located in various metropolitan markets across America.  We also determine if any differences exist in individual philanthropic communities from year to year.

In terms of their overall Financial Health and commitment to Accountability & Transparency, the study’s highest and lowest rated charitable communities are:
