We are donor partners.

Charities Review Council knows that all donors are investors. We collaborate with both donors and grantmakers to ensure that every precious dollar goes to strong, ethical, and trustworthy organizations. We work hard to support individual donors, providing free resources to help you make informed giving decisions.

We are nonprofit partners.

We meet organizations where they are. With a combination of cloud-based technical assistance, non-judgmental support, and robust resources, organizations can align their governance and management practices with community co-created standards of nonprofit strength and accountability in our risk-free environment. The nonprofits participating in the review process are valued partners in our work, engaged with Council staff in the shared goal of strengthening their organizational capacity.
