My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Charity Navigator, Glen Rock, NJ, USA
I find it strange that That this company says it was incorporated into 2000 yet your Filings with the IRS only started in 2009. the total amount of revenue since it started it says it's a little over 1.3 million and a and that your expenses are 1.1 million. I know that nonprofit companies do not take extra profit and by saying so, employees take their fair pay for hours worked, but the usual greedy corporate hierarchy in nonprofit companies donates the profit after expenses paid. Looking at your numbers, and assumeing the approximate $200 000 revenue was used to pay employee wages, is absolutely confusing and seemingly fraudlant. It shows that two hundred thousand dollars was all the extra revenue in a total of 13 years?!? I find that very hard believe. There something very strange about your numbers and what is really so. $200,000 in 13 years is barely enough to feed one person, nevermind a CEO and a huge list of employees. Either you are lying about the year 2000, the year Charity Navigator was supposedly incorporated, or you are lying about numbers...unless of course your CEO is driving a 1979 plastic tricycle with state of the fart cadmium laced lead pedals made in north korea. Considering its earliest IRS file was in 2009, something seems like BS. You have stolen somebodies idea and are trying to look legit. You must be sweating like a north korean on meth in a tricycle sweatshop in fear of when you will be audited. Time to call the person who has really worked on this for 11 years and tell him to lawyer up.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Admit I stole it and do less time now the later
How does this organization compare with others in the same sector?
How much of an impact do you think this organization has?
Will you recommend this organization to others?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Dear Anonymous Reviewer, Charity Navigator was founded in 2001 as a private foundation. Our Form 990-PFs, as far back as 2006, are accessible on our site here: http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=content.view&cpid=931. You'll find our audited financials there as well. And you'll see that we've recently completed our transition to public charity status and as such our most recent Form 990 is not a 990-PF. I'm not sure where you got the information that you quote in your review - which does not make sense at all! Please let us know so that we can properly address your questions and concerns. Sincerely, Charity Navigator
