This past December, for the 16th consecutive year, IJ earned Charity Navigator’s four-star rating for our commitment to accountability and transparency and for demonstrating strong financial health.

This is Charity Navigator’s highest possible rating. In once again awarding IJ the four-star designation, Charity Navigator wrote:

Less than 1% of the charities we evaluate have received at least 16 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Institute for Justice outperforms most other charities in America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets Institute for Justice apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.

What’s more, IJ’s overall high score on Charity Navigator’s evaluation scale puts us at the top of the list of organizations with the most consecutive four-star ratings.

IJ’s consistently excellent performance in these ratings is a result of careful financial stewardship and the highest professional standards across the organization. Our exceptional rating from Charity Navigator is one more indication that your investment in IJ is secure—and that it is paying dividends for individual liberty.

Charity Navigator is the world’s largest and most used evaluator of charities, assessing more than 8,000 nonprofits every year. For more information, visit CharityNavigator.org.
