Navigating The Giving Season To Make The Most Impact

Whether you are an established giver to charities, or find yourself moved during times of disasters, Americans are a giving people. At this time of year, many of us find our thoughts turning toward our fellow man, and we may look for ways to donate or help in some way; perhaps it helps us finish up the year in a positive frame of mind. If you feel overwhelmed or confused by the sheer number of charities reaching out to you, take a look at Charity Navigator, a full-featured web site that tries to show you how the charities handle the money you entrust to them. After all, you ultimately want your donations to get to the people or groups that you designate and to make a difference.
Founded in 2001, Charity Navigator has become the nation's largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities. In our quest to help donors, our team of professional analysts has examined tens of thousands of non-profit financial documents. We've used this knowledge to develop an unbiased, objective, numbers-based rating system to assess over 6,000 of America's best-known and some lesser known, but worthy, charities.
