How Do You Find Those Forms 990?

Did you know that each charity's page on our site includes its Forms 990 (the informational return charities file annually with the IRS and the source of much of the data used by Charity Navigator to rate charities)? That's right, you can view both rated and unrated charities's Forms 990 right from our site.

For a rated charity:

  1. Click on its IRS tab 
  2. Then scroll to the bottom of the page

For an unrated organization:

  1. Find it in the search results tab titled 'unrated organizations' 
  2. Scroll to the bottom of its page

And if the charity isn't rated, our site includes tips to help you interpret what you are seeing on the Form 990.

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 >>
