Ratings & Metrics
|Program %||Cost to Raise $100|
Accounting rules allow charities to report some telemarketing, direct mail, and other solicitation costs as Program expenses. CharityWatch believes that most donors do not consider a charity's solicitation activities to be the Programs they are intending to support with their donations. We therefore adjust such expenses out of a charity's reported Program expense and add it to Fundraising expense prior to calculating its rating.

CharityWatch Analysts perform an in-depth analysis of charities' audited financial statements and IRS tax filings, and often review other documents such as state filings, annual reports, and fundraising contracts during their evaluations. Below are select notes that CharityWatch believes may be of interest to donors.
|CharityWatch's rating of Compassion & Choices is for the 501(c)(3) public charity (tax ID #84-1328829).
The rating does not include the financial activities of the related 501(c)(4) tax-exempt, social welfare organization, Compassion & Choices Action Network (tax ID #84-1328830), for which CharityWatch does not provide a separate rating at this time.
CharityWatch issues separate ratings for 501(c)(3) & 501(c)(4) organizations, even if their financial activities are included together in a consolidated or combined audit, due to their different treatment under the IRS tax code.
