4-star rating from Charity Navigator
For the second consecutive year the Federation of American Scientists has received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, an evaluation group that ranks nonprofit organizations. The service compares the financial management of about 3,000 nonprofits per year as a service to potential donors.
"Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that your organization excels, as compared to other charities in America, in the area of strong fiscal management. This consistency in your rating is an exceptional feat, especially given the economic challenges all charities have had to face in the last year," Veronica Marshall of CN said today.
Other nonprofits in the sciences awarded 4 stars are the Rand Corporation, the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, and the American Associaton for the Advancement of Science.
FAS received a score of 68.77 of a perfect 70.
Charity Navigator is America's largest independent evaluator of charities, according to Veronica Marshall of CN.
