Charity Navigator, America's largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities, has awarded the Washington Institute for Near East Policy a prestigious 4-star charity rating for good governance, sound fiscal management, and commitment to accountability and transparency.
"We are honored to receive Charity Navigator's highest rating," said Executive Director Robert Satloff. "With this distinction, our supporters can be even more confident that their philanthropic dollars are being used efficiently and responsibly to support the Institute's commitment to producing groundbreaking analysis and timely policy recommendations."
Charity Navigator works to help charitable givers make intelligent giving decisions by providing information on more than five thousand charities nationwide and by evaluating their financial health. It calculates each charity's score based upon several broad criteria, including how much is spent per dollar raised, what percentage of funds goes to programs vs. administrative and fundraising expenses, and the organization's long-term financial health. It then assigns a rating from one to four, with four being the best rating.
