OUR MISSION: Make impactful giving easier for all. Charity Navigator is the world's largest and most trusted nonprofit evaluator.
Since 2001, we've been empowering millions of donors by providing them with free access to data, tools, and resources to guide philanthropic decision-making. Through our ratings, nonprofits are equipped with the nonprofit sector's premier trust indicator and a powerful platform to raise awareness and funds.
Accessed more than 11 million times annually, donors can give with confidence knowing the organizations that are highly rated on Charity Navigator efficiently steward donations and are accountable and transparent. While we have a large footprint and an established, trusted brand, our team of approximately 25 considers itself small-but-mighty.
Like the nonprofits we rate, we're a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, too. We don't charge the organizations we evaluate, ensuring our ratings remain objective. In turn, we depend on the generosity of individuals, foundations, and corporations to fund our programs.
