Charity efficiency and transparency ratings
Jon Lebkowsky, 29 Dec 04

This is useful: Benjamin Rosenbaum's created a table showing how the relief organizations responding to the Southeast Asian tsunami are rated by watchdog organizations. Via boingboing. [Link]

The only issue with charitynavigator, which Ben reports on, is that it only reports charities that receive more than $500,000 in public support with require 4 years of Forms 990 to complete an evaluation.

Ours usually is usually between $50 - $100K (as 90% of our work is pro-bono) and as a small organization less than 1% is spent on admin. - I don't take a salary and cover administrative costs.

I think Network for Good/Guidestar is more inclusive but there support sucks (online updating has been down for FOUR months and no-one returns calls).

Cheers,
Cameron

Brainstorming here ... but what would be most useful would be a system that that incorporated elements from Ebay and Amazon.

Allow donors and recipients to rate each other. Ask the community -- were they impressed by the charitable donations?
