Charity Navigator Tests Your Nonprofit Knowledge

Charity Navigator Tests Your Nonprofit Knowledge

As one of the leading charity evaluators in the United States, Charity Navigator has a LOT of data about how donations and giving work, so we're asking you some questions to see if you are nonprofit savvy!
  • Do you know what was the first year that charities were required by law to provide copies of their 3 most recently filed Forms 990 to anyone making a request in person or in writing?
  • What institution conducted the first fundraising drive in America in 1643?
  • When were taxpayers first allowed to deduct their charitable donations?
  • When were nonitemizers no longer allowed to claim a charitable deduction on their tax returns?
  • How much money did Americans donate in 2004 to help the victims of the tsunami in South Asia?
You'll find the answers to these questions on our site.

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 >>
