What is Charity Navigator?

When you are in the market for a new refrigerator, you ask your neighbors and friends for recommendations, and maybe even consult Consumer Reports to see different ratings. When you want to donate to a charity, how do you decide if the charity will take care of your donation and use your donation to meet its mission? Charity Navigator has been called the Consumer Reports of the nonprofit world. It is the largest charity evaluator in America. Its website attracts more visitors than all other charity rating groups combined.  Charity Navigator is a free service that evaluates the financial health, accountability and transparency of more than 6,000 charities. Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research (Rally) has a perfect score of 100 from Charity Navigator. “Less than one percent of the thousands of charities rated by Charity Navigator have earned perfect scores.

Meet Rally Kid Keren. Again.

Meet Rally Kid Keren. Again.

Yes, you have met her before. Five years ago, Rally Kid Keren was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a soft tissue cancer. Her fight included chemotherapy, radiation and an amputation. Throughout treatment Keren showed her resilience and kept a positive outlook. With the unwavering support of her parents, Kelly and Jonathan, and her older brother Jacob and younger sister Lyla, Keren rang the bell in 2019. She had to continue with physical therapy and deal with multiple side effects from her treatment. A heavy blow came in 2021 to Keren, her family and friends.

Radical shoulder surgery. So many nights in the hospital. Missed the first semester of high school. But, through it all Keren remained resilient and...

$56 Million In New Federal Funding

ATLANTA (September 1, 2022) – After six years of intense advocacy with Department of Defense (DOD) Subcommittee members, Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research is excited to announce $56 million in new federal funding this year for cancers affecting children, adolescents, and young adults (AYAs). The $56 million is being awarded from the DOD Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs’ (CDMRP) Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program directly to researchers, funding 44 projects. Rally Foundation’s Founder, Dean Crowe, who never stops looking for new funding, learned six years ago that the DOD has a $1.5 billion medical research program. At the time, about $300 million was allocated to cancers where the average age of diagnosis was 66 years old — even though almost 90% of active military personnel are 39 years old or younger with an average age of 25 years. In addition,...
