Guidance in charitable giving
Better Business Bureau (BBB) Wise Giving Alliance
BBB Wise Giving Alliance provides charity reports, which help donors review charities and find a trustworthy charity to support. We also conduct charity assessments to help charities improve their practices and demonstrate trust.
Charity Navigator, America's largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities, rates the financial health and accountability & transparency of >6,000 of America's largest charities.
Charity Navigator works to guide intelligent giving. We help charitable givers make intelligent giving decisions by providing information on over five thousand charities and by evaluating the financial health and accountability and transparency 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.
CharityWatch is a nationally prominent charity rating and evaluation service dedicated to helping donors make informed giving decisions. How does your favorite charity rate? Find out in the Charity Rating Guide and Watchdog Report.
Our goal is to produce the world's top research on where to give. Free, for everyone. We recommend a small number of charities that do an incredible amount of good.
At GuideStar we gather and disseminate information about every single IRS-registered nonprofit organization. We provide as much information as we can about each nonprofit's mission, legitimacy, impact, reputation, finances, programs, transparency, governance, and so much more. We do that so you can take the information and make the best decisions possible.
