Charity Navigator

Visit Charity Navigator to read reviews of the financial health of over 5,000 of America’s largest charities. You can browse by category (arts, animals, health) or seek information on a specific group. Lists include “highly rated charities with low-paid CEOs” and “charities drowning in administrative costs.”

CEO Ken Berger was recently quoted in the New York Times saying, “Many donors feel that paying the leader of a charity a six-figure salary is outrageous.” You can also keep up to date on how to make useful contributions to current disasters such as the flood in Pakistan.
