Periodically, I shoot out reference questions to Twitter as I completely blank on the source I need to answer a question. As I usually get a variety of very useful responses to my question which I want to collate for myself, I’ll be posting them here as a semi-regular feature.
Today’s question: “what’s the website where you can check the effectiveness of charities/non-profits?”
- Charity Navigator (the one I was thinking of) – http://www.charitynavigator.org/
- Guidestar – http://www2.guidestar.org/
- IRS – http://www.irs.gov/charities/article/0,,id=96136,00.html – gotta love those governmental links!
- Givewell – http://www.givewell.org/
- Better Business Bureau – http://www.bbb.org/us/charity/
- American Institute of Philanthropy – http://charitywatch.org/
