Give Thoughtfully

CharityWatch—founded more than 20 years ago as the American Institute of Philanthropy (AIP)—is America's most independent, assertive charity watchdog. CharityWatch does not merely repeat what a charity reports using simplistic or automated formulas. We dive deep to let you know how efficiently a charity will use your donation to fund the programs you want to support. CharityWatch exposes nonprofit abuses and advocates for your interests as a donor.

The Chronicle of Philanthropy published several of our triumphs in an in-depth profile of CharityWatch & our president Daniel Borochoff: An MBA's Sleuthing Skills Puts Charities on the Hot Seat.
