Wild Earth Allies’ strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the 10th consecutive time that Wild Earth Allies has been awarded this top distinction, an honor only 2% of evaluated charities have earned.
Since 2002, using objective analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. In 2011, Charity Navigator added 17 metrics, focused on governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness, to its ratings methodology. These Accountability & Transparency metrics, which account for 50 percent of a charity’s overall rating, reveal which charities operate in accordance with industry best practices and whether they are open with their donors and stakeholders.
“Wild Earth Allies’ exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. This adds Wild Earth Allies to a preeminent group of charities working to overcome our world’s most pressing challenges. Based on its 4-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support Wild Earth Allies.”
“Our organization is built on important values — optimism, cultural respect, shared learning, and integrity — and we run lean,” said Wild Earth Allies Executive Director Katie Frohardt. “During COVID-19, our model has allowed us to adapt quickly to emerging threats and deliver meaningful impact with our field teams and partners around the world. We’re incredibly proud of our track record and the honor of receiving 10 consecutive 4-star ratings from Charity Navigator.”
