Charity Navigator is the largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities in the United States providing data on 1.8 million nonprofits and ratings for close to 10,000 charities.

Charity Navigator evaluates a nonprofit organization’s financial health including measures of stability, efficiency, and sustainability. They also track accountability and transparency policies to ensure the good governance and integrity of the organization. The data is derived from IRS tax filings.

Charity Navigator also assesses how well a nonprofit delivers on its mission by issuing Impact & Results score. They estimate the actual impact a nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves and determine whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact. The data is already provided, and we are waiting on the score and it could take months.
