Tosca Bruno-van Vijfeijken, co-Director of the Transnational NGO Initiative, recently was invited to join Charity Navigator's Advisory Panel. This follows on years of engagement by various members of the Initiative in the discourse with Charity Navigator, other charity rating intermediaries, and INGOs on the impact of these rating systems. Charity Navigator is the largest US independent web-based nonprofit evaluator. It is undergoing wide ranging and important changes in its rating system, which through its indicators will balance the need for NGOs to be financially healthy, transparent and accountable, and to report on their results to the public.
