Charity Navigator Turns 15 Today!

Charity Navigator's Birthday
Charity Navigator site in 2002
Fifteen years ago, Charity Navigator was created to help donors find charities to trust and support. Back then, John Dugan, a successful entrepreneur, and his wife Marion were surprised to learn how little expert information was available to them when it came time to share their good fortune with those in need. Within months (on April 15, 2002, to be exact), they launched a website to provide other donors with data-driven, unbiased rating evaluations, along with a wealth of other information and tools. 

Our impact on American giving cannot be overstated. We've grown from rating 1,100 charities to more than 8,000. And the number of visits to our website has grown from a few thousand in 2002 to more than ten million this past year.

Please take a moment to learn more about our path to success and to help ensure that we continue to assist donors for years to come.

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 >>
