Charity Navigator Gives…And takes Away

Charity Navigator has a somewhat controversial rating system for charities awarding stars to measure the financial health, viability and transparency of charities.

A new updates rating system has resulted in ratings changes for over half of the 5,500 charities rated. Charity Navigator considers whether the charity is making easily available information regarding its governance practices, ethical practices, financial information, effectiveness and results.

Our friends at e Jewish Philanthropy have just posted a blog lists changes in the ratings of many large Jewish Charities. Here is a list of Jewish organizations that have lost the coveted 4 Star rating (new ratings appear in parentheses following the organization name).
