Charity Navigator rates charities by evaluating two broad areas of performance; Financial Health and Accountability & Transparency.
The ratings show donors how efficiently a charity uses their support today, how well it has sustained its programs and services over time and their level of commitment to being accountable and transparent, a release stated.
Charity Navigator provides these ratings so that donors can make intelligent giving decisions, and so that the philanthropic community can be more effectively monitored. For more information, visit CharityNavigator.org.
