Thank you for this analysis. I am very glad you dug into the data. I have written about other problems with Charity Navigator, Beware The Nonprofit Watchdog – Charity Navigator http://dongriesmannsnonprofitblog.blogspot.com/2009/07/beware-nonprofit-watchdog-charity.html There are others, with Charity Navigator, looking to establish standards for NPOs beyond the IRS Form 990. The task sounds daunting. The Alliance for Social Investing, www.alleffective.org, and others are looking to develop a Social Value Assessment Tool by the end of the year. It will be interesting to see how they avoid Charity Navigator's traps.
