Hassle Free Giving

Charity Navigator was founded to help ensure donor’s have trust in charities, and if you are reading this blog right now, then it affirms one more statement: You trust in us. One of our most important core values is trust because as an evaluator, we must be of the standard in which we evaluate everyone else. Here at Charity Navigator we like to make sure that our donors have the opportunity to “give in peace.” We make this happen through a relatively new feature, launched on October 29th, 2015, called our Giving Basket. This giving basket enables donors to give to charities anonymously, which helps them avoid constant follow up appeals for support that can cause some donors to lose their enthusiasm for charitable giving.

Since launching the Giving Basket, Charity Navigator has experienced an incredible amount of positive feedback. Here, a donor who used the Giving Basket expressed her satisfaction through social media by saying, “The @CharityNav Giving Basket is my new favorite thing. Makes it most easy to donate to multiple nonprofits in a single transaction!” We also feature a “Donation Ticker” that allows anyone who visits our website to see a live feed of donations made via our Giving Basket. Through only about five months, the giving basket has had:

  • 9,911 donors
  • $5,588,715 donated
  • 5,172 charities supported

The giving basket allows donors to anonymously give to as many charities that they desire, with the simple click of a button. Now with another simple click of a button, YOU can join the safe and convenient luxury of being able to donate to the causes that you care about. Be sure to visit the Giving Basket and be a part of the amazing giving experience with thousands of other satisfied donors.

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 >>
