What is a good charity?
Most people think of a good charitable organization as one that offers an opportunity to give back to society, a good cause, and/or some kind of social good.

Some charities are exempt from being required to disclose their donors.

What is the difference between a charity and a non-profit?
The term “non-profit” is used to describe organizations that are not governed by the laws and regulations of a state or a federal government.
They are not considered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations and are not subject to disclosure requirements by the Internal Revenue Service.
Some nonprofits, however, are not nonprofit and do not have to disclose to the public the names of their donors, the sources of their funding, or the number of their employees.
Non-profit organizations are generally considered public charities, because they are not exempt from tax reporting requirements by either state or federal government regulations.
Nonprofit organizations that do not comply with state or Federal tax reporting regulations are subject to penalties.
However, many non-profits are exempt and are allowed to continue providing services.
For example, the Salvation Army provides services to homeless people and seniors.
The Salvation War provides medical and nursing care to the needy in communities across the country.
Army provides humanitarian aid to military personnel stationed overseas.
The World Food Program (WFP) provides food and other humanitarian assistance to more than 6 million people.
These charities are listed on Charity Navigation, and in this guide, we will be comparing charities that do charitable work with those that do non-charitable work.

Charity indices are based solely on the data from a charity organization and cannot be compared with other charities or non-public nonprofit organizations based on a comparison of their finances.
Charity groups are not eligible to be listed on the Charity Navigating Charity Index because of their non-tax status.
Nonprofits can be exempt from filing tax returns, however.
There is also no requirement that non-private nonprofit organizations provide information about their donors or where their funds come from.
