This week’s Website of the Week is CharityNavigator.org. Founded in 2001, Charity Navigator has become one of the world’s largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities. In their quest to help donors, their team of professional analysts has examined tens of thousands of non-profit financial documents. They’ve used this knowledge to develop an unbiased, objective, numbers-based rating system to assess over 8,000 charities.
So if you want to donate to a worthy cause but you’re not sure which charity is for you, use this site to get the cold hard facts about just where your money will go.
This week’s Website of the Week is Khan Academy. This site is run by a not-for-profit organisation whose aim is to provide education for anyone, anywhere, for free. Users can sign up and complete thousands of self-paced tutorials on hundreds of topics. Based around YouTube style how-to videos, the lessons allow students and teachers alike to introduce themselves to concepts, progress through a series of lessons, re-visit concepts they find hard and consolidate learning by taking quizzes and viewing their own progress.
