Charity Navigator pushes Hollywood Hashtag Activism and Oprah
The non-profit charity watchdog group that has given the Clinton Foundation a 4-star rating, their highest, turned to Social Media to highlight the Golden Globes and their hashtag activism called #TimesUp, to bring awareness to sexual harassment.
“We are aware of the recent news regarding the Clinton Foundation and it is in the process of being reviewed by our Advisory Issuance Committee,” said Charity Navigator in a statement to Big League Politics.
Charity Navigator has become the nation’s largest evaluator of charities. “In our quest to help donors, our team of professional analysts has examined tens of thousands of non-profit financial documents,” according to their website.
Charity Navigator’s rating system is base on their Financial Health and their Accountability & Transparency.
“Our ratings show givers how efficiently we believe a charity will use their support today, how well it has sustained its programs and services over time and their level of commitment to good governance, best practices and openness with information. In the not-too-distant future, we plan to also rate charities’ reporting of their results. We provide these ratings so that charitable givers/ social investors can make intelligent giving decisions, and so that the nonprofit sector can improve its performance,” according to Charity Navigator website.
Not everyone loves the Charity Watchog rating systems. Charles Ortel is an investigator and writer who has focused on the Clinton Foundation, for over 7 years.

When I exposed "issues" at GE starting 2007, that company's debt was rated "TRIPLE A" (highest) by REAL RATING AGENCIES–there is no serious, indepemdent rater for charities and this is an AWFUL JOKE:https://t.co/1tc8P9G3pM

According to the Charity Navigator blog, “The team from Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest independent charity evaluator and leading donor advocate, shares their thoughts on emerging nonprofit-sector issues and offers tips to better inform your intelligent giving decisions.”
“Last night, at the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards leading ladies from film and television took the stage to let Hollywood and the rest of the world know that #TimesUp for sexual harassment. Were you watching? Learn more about taking a stand against sexual harassment by supporting a highly-rated organization today.”
WHO IS BEHIND #TIMESUP?
According to Charity Navigator:
“Much of the evening’s attention pointed back to Time’s Up, an anti-sexual harassment group, which was announced in the New York Times on January 1, 2018, and has been gaining traction ahead of the 2018 entertainment award season. The group began partly in response to the #MeToo movement and a letter of solidarity from the Alianza Nacional de Campesinas which was written on behalf of nearly 700,000 female farmworkers to the women who bravely exposed the sexual abuse allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.”
“Time’s Up aims to use the Hollywood spotlight to bring awareness to sexual harassment outside of the entertainment industry. The Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund, administered by the National Women’s Law Center, subsidizes legal support for individuals who have experienced sexual harassment, abuse, or related retaliation in the workplace. The fund has raised more than $16 million through its GoFundMe page since it was announced roughly three weeks ago.”
Many people on social Media speculate that the #TimesUp Hashtag activism is a creative get out the vote for Oprah Winfrey Television Talk Show Host, to run for President.
