Tools and Resources for Assessing Social Impact


Charity Navigator Rating

This is a tool that rates charities. It evaluates two broad areas of financial health, organizational efficiency and organizational capacity. It uses a set of financial ratios or performance categories to rate each of these two areas, and issues an overall rating that combines the charity’s performance in both areas. The ratings show givers how efficiently Charity Navigator believes a charity will use their support today, and to what extent the charities are growing their programs and services over time. In the future, Charity Navigator intends to provide a measurement of each charity’s potential to deliver social value.
