IJ Earns Top Rating From Charity Navigator

By Beth Stevens

For the second consecutive year, the Institute for Justice earned the highest rating from Charity Navigator, a nonprofit organization that evaluates the financial management and organizational efficiency of 2,100 charities across the country.

In recognizing the Institute, Charity Navigator said, “Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that your organization excels, as compared to other charities in America, in the area of strong fiscal management. This consistency in your rating is an exceptional feat, especially given the economic challenges all charities have had to face in the last year.”

Charity Navigator was founded in 2001 to help donors make informed decisions by providing data on and evaluating the financial health of America’s largest charities. It rates charities by evaluating two broad areas of financial health, organizational efficiency and organizational capacity, and then issues an overall rating that combines the charity’s performance in both areas. The information is provided free of charge on the organization’s website, www.charitynavigator.org.

The Institute for Justice works hard to put to good use each dollar we receive in support. We’re honored to be recognized in this way.

Beth Stevens is the Institute’s director of development.
