Charity Navigator rates charities by evaluating two broad areas of performance; Financial Health and Accountability & Transparency. These ratings are intended to show donors how efficiently each charity will use donor support, how well it has sustained its programs and services over time and the charities level of commitment to being accountable and transparent. Charity Navigator provides these ratings so that donors can make intelligent giving decisions, and so that the philanthropic community can more effectively monitor itself.
