In November, for the 18th year running, IJ was awarded Charity Navigator’s highest 4-star rating for our commitment to financial health, accountability, and transparency.

Less than 1% of the more than 9,000 charities Charity Navigator evaluates have received at least 18 consecutive 4-star evaluations and, as of this writing, IJ is the highest-ranked charity in that elite group.

In awarding the designation, Charity Navigator writes that this distinction indicates that IJ “outperforms most other charities in America.” What’s more, “this exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets the Institute for Justice apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”

Public interest law is a long-term endeavor. To be successful, we must bring our very best efforts to bear, year after year. IJ’s ongoing fiscal excellence is just another indication that we are well positioned to pursue and achieve long-term change.
