Evaluating charities - it-man - 08-11-2015

Not all charities are created equal. It is unrealistic to assume that most of the money given to a charity actually goes to the cause they promote. Some charities spend an major portion of what they receive on salaries, and administrative overhead. Here are some websites that evaluates and rates charities:
  • http://www.charitynavigator.org/
  • http://www.givewell.org/
  • https://www.charitywatch.org/
  • http://give.org/
These websites have a wide variety of resources on charities. All of them evaluate and rate charities but each site uses their own rating scheme. Some of the site have interesting and helpful articles about giving to charities. 

If you have found other resources or website that evaluate charities, please post what you found on this thread.
