The charity network Charity Navigator ranked Catholic charities based on the percentage of their donations going to charity.
The list includes charities that provide food, clothing and shelter, as well as education and social services.
Charity Navigators said that, in general, Catholic charities were better than non-Catholic charities at helping those in need.
But Charity Navgers report also found that some charities are better than others at helping people cope with a difficult time.
For example, the National Catholic Welfare Alliance said it has helped hundreds of thousands of people in need in the last year.
But its charity network, Catholic Charities USA, also saw its list of the top charities for Christians fall to second place.
The National Catholic Social Services Alliance also saw a slight rise in its ranking, from fifth to third place.
Other charities on the list that saw their numbers rise include Catholic Charitable Foundation of America, which is now in third place, and the Catholic Charismatic Association of America.
The charity organization Catholic Charitas, which has more than 2,000 charities around the world, saw its number of donations increase from 1.3 million in 2013 to 2.5 million in 2014.
Other top charities include The Salvation Army, which saw a drop in donations from 526,000 in 2013 and 6.1 million in 2015 to 575,000 and 674,000, respectively.
The Salvation Corporation of America saw its charitable contributions fall from 1,054,000 to 821,000 last year and to 751,000 this year.
Charity experts said that many of the biggest changes to the charity network over the past few years have been to focus more on helping those who are poor.
“We’ve seen some big changes over the last couple of years, but there’s been a lot of good stuff,” said Andrew Cawley, a professor of church and charitable finance at the University of California, Berkeley.
“I think we’re seeing a lot more of it and a lot less of the bad stuff.”
Charity experts also say that some of the charities are struggling to find the resources to help those in the most vulnerable in society.
“The big winners in the category are not charities that are particularly focused on helping people who are homeless or in dire straits,” said Cawleys associate director of the Centre for Church and Charities and an expert on church and charity finance.
“They’re not giving to churches or charities that have an emphasis on helping the poor.”
Another trend is that charities are doing a better job of getting the donations that are needed from the churches they serve.
For instance, The Salvation Navy saw a big rise in donations last year, with the number of people who made a contribution rising from 4,000 people to 9,500.
The organization has since started to expand its network of Christian schools to help children and their families.
“Our schools are more and more geared towards helping kids,” said David Cavanagh, a spokesperson for The Salvation National Foundation, which provides support services for children in the United States.
“But as our numbers have increased, so have the needs of our communities.”
However, some charities aren’t doing so well, according to the report.
Charity leaders are also seeing a rise in fraud.
Charity investigators have found that many charities are getting caught up in fraud that has led to more than $200 million in losses.
“There are many charities that seem to be trying to skirt the law and not do their due diligence to see if they can get back at those that have not,” Cawries said.
Charity officials are also finding that some churches are not being transparent about their financial records.
“For a number of years now, we’ve been seeing a great deal of fraud and deception going on by churches,” said the head of charity fraud at the National Foundation for the Blind, which oversees the organization’s charitable work.
“This is a situation that I have been in for a long time and I’ve never seen it happen.”
Charity leaders and fraud experts say that fraud is not just happening to the most powerful organizations in the world.
It’s happening to every Christian organization in America.
For Charity Navigators, Charity Navigating is an online tool that helps organizations find their way to a good place.
“When you get a list of charities that don’t work and you can’t find them, that’s a sign of fraud,” said Ms. Cawry.
“If you look at the list of top charities, and you look for a top charity that works, and they’re not doing the work, that means that there’s fraud.”
