GLEN ROCK, N.J.--()--In the past 12 months, more than 10 million people have visited CharityNavigator.org. Most of them are reading Charity Navigator’s ratings and evaluations of charities before making their donations. Many site visitors make their donations directly from the Charity Navigator site by clicking the “Donate To This Charity” button.

Charity Navigator reviewed the donations made from January 20, 2017 to April 20, 2017 and compared them to the donations made during that period a year earlier.

The comparison shows just how much giving to certain organizations has increased:

       
ACLU UP 8,000%
SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER UP 1,400%
PLANNED PARENTHOOD UP 1,000%
AMERICAN REFUGEE COMMITTEE UP 645%
ENVIRONMENTAL DEFENSE FUND UP 500%
 

Charity Navigator found that giving on the site was not up across all social action cause categories. Donations to some health and disease organizations were flat or down slightly from a year earlier.
