About

Founded in 1946, Charities Review Council remains a one-of-its-kind resource to both donors and nonprofits.

Transforming Philanthropy

Building donor and nonprofit relationships for strong, vibrant and just communities.


By creating the spaces, places, and tools for donor-nonprofit engagement, we are building a culture of philanthropy where donors, funders, and nonprofits are engaged partners, working together toward stronger communities.

WE ARE DEDICATED TO DONORS.

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 ARE PARTNERS OF NONPROFITS.

We partner with nonprofit leaders to build and communicate their organizations’ internal strengths. With a combination of cloud-based technical assistance, non-judgmental support, and robust resources, we provide a risk-free environment where organizations can undertake our innovative Accountability Wizard® review process to align their internal practices with widely-accepted standards of nonprofit strength and accountability.

WE ARE SUPPORTING GRANTMAKERS IN NEW WAYS.

The Council supports funders in being responsive and responsible grantee partners,  ensuring that their grantees create the most impact they can.
