For the sixth year in a row, the Institute for Justice has earned Charity Navigator’s highest “4-star” rating for financial management and organizational efficiency.
This rating puts IJ in an elite group of only 49 charities nationwide—less than one percent of the 5,200 charities rated this year—to have earned at least six consecutive 4-star ratings. Only three other “public benefit” organizations (think tanks, advocacy groups, public policy organizations and the like) have achieved this distinction.
The New York Times, NPR and The Chronicle of Philanthropy each have profiled Charity Navigator’s unique method of applying data-driven analysis to the charitable sector. The organization evaluates ten times more charities than their nearest competitor and currently attracts more visitors to their website than all other charity rating groups combined.

July 1 marks the start of a new fiscal year at the Institute for Justice. On that day, our income statement returns to $0, and we start from scratch to raise the $8 million-plus that we will spend on our strategic litigation over the next 12 months. As you consider your charitable giving this year, we hope you will renew your investment—or begin providing financial support if you are not doing so already. Whether it is $25 or $2,500 or more, we are grateful for your generosity and the belief in our mission that it represents.
