Just throught I’d post a quick link to Charity Navigator, a 501(c)(3) non profit that evaluates charities. Why is this important? Because charitable giving is a huge market, approximately $700 billion dollars last year, according to Charity Navigator.
We help charitable givers make intelligent giving decisions by providing information on over five thousand charities and by evaluating the financial health of each of these charities. We ensure our evaluations are widely used by making them easy to understand and available to the public free of charge. By guiding intelligent giving, we aim to advance a more efficient and responsive philanthropic marketplace, in which givers and the charities they support work in tandem to overcome our nation’s most persistent challenges.
There’s a lot of information there, but if you want to take a look at the most interesting page, try the Top 10 Lists.
