Carnegie Ranked Top Charity 12 Years Running

Washington, D.C.—The Carnegie Institution for Science received the highest rating for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency—four stars—from Charity Navigator for the twelfth consecutive year. Charity Navigator is America's largest charity evaluator. Only five organizations out of the 5,500 evaluated have received this highest rating for this long. The Carnegie Institution for Science is the only Washington, D.C.-based organization to earn this distinction.

 

The Charity Navigator rating system considers two components—an organization’s financial health plus its accountability and transparency. According to Charity Navigator, “receiving four out of four possible stars indicates that your organization adheres to good governance and other best practices…and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way.”

 

Charity Navigator states that “[t]his ‘exceptional’ designation…differentiates Carnegie Institution for Science from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”

 

Carnegie president Richard A. Meserve remarked, “We are extremely pleased that Charity Navigator has provided us with its highest ranking of four stars for the twelfth year in a row. The institution takes great pride that there are fewer than 1% of organizations ranked that hold this distinction.”
