If you are the executive director of a charity and are considering approaching Charity Intelligence, please do. Both HeroWork, StepStones for Youth and Veteran's Transition Network are "new new" - first analysed in 2021 and among Ci's 2021 100 highest rated charities. Our ratings are based on objective measures: your charity must be financially transparent with the audited financial statements for the two most recent years publicly posted on your website. We will not do an analysis without this financial transparency. We also require an annual report that describes in detail your charity's strategy, activities, outputs and results. This information is all posted here in the For Charities section. We will review the information you submit on a 'best efforts' basis as responding to donor requests is our first priority.
