For the 17th consecutive year, IJ has earned Charity Navigator’s highest rating—four stars—for our commitment to financial health, accountability, and transparency.

Charity Navigator is the world’s largest and most utilized charity rating service, assessing more than 9,000 nonprofits every year. In once again awarding IJ the designation, Charity Navigator wrote:

Less than 1% of the charities we evaluate have received at least 17 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.

IJ’s consistent excellent performance in these ratings is a result of careful 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.
