IJ Earns Top Marks From America’s Premier Charity Evaluator Two Decades Running

December 13, 2021

For the 20th consecutive year, Charity Navigator has awarded the Institute for Justice its highest four-star rating for our commitment to financial health, accountability, and transparency. Charity Navigator is America’s largest and most trusted nonprofit evaluator, and its consistently exceptional rating for IJ is yet more proof that a donation to IJ is a sound investment in securing freedom and justice for all. 

Within the elite group of top-rated charities, IJ stands out for our peerless stewardship of donor money. Among thousands of star-rated charities, only IJ and one other organization have received the highest rating for 20 years in a row, with IJ ranked at the very top of this list. According to Charity Navigator, this marks IJ as an organization “well-positioned to pursue and achieve long-term change.” 

And Charity Navigator isn’t the only charity evaluator taking notice of IJ’s commitment to excellence. GuideStar, another respected charity evaluator, has given IJ its Gold Seal of Transparency, and GreatNonprofits, a Yelp-like review site for charities, has named us a 2021 Top-Rated organization thanks to our outstanding donor reviews. 

Honors like these help spread the word about IJ’s efficacy and commitment to our donors, encouraging both new and longtime supporters to fund our work for many years to come.
