NAVi (Nonprofit Aid Visualizer™) Methodology

This edition of Vanguard Charitable’s Nonprofit Aid Visualizer (NAVi) highlights nonprofit organizations (NPOs) with a focus on either hunger or homelessness (HH). The data sets within the Nonprofit Aid Visualizer for Hunger & Homelessness (NAViHH) are sourced from three data providers:

  • Candid 
  • Feeding America®,
  • The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)

These organizations provided data relevant to the NPO metrics and the hunger and homelessness severity assessment, respectively. Below we have detailed the methodology used to create this tool. This methodology applies to the tool itself and not the underlying data sets created by Vanguard Charitable’s data providers. Vanguard Charitable does not control or endorse such data sets and makes no representations of the accuracy or completeness of such data sets.
