June 14, 2016 — Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator, has again awarded the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) its highest, 4-star rating—this time with a perfect (100%) score.
FNIH is one of just eight health charities to earn a perfect score, and ranks in the top 1% of the thousands of organizations evaluated. This marks the 13th consecutive year the FNIH has been recognized by Charity Navigator as an organization that “exceeds industry standards.”
Since 2002, Charity Navigator has awarded “only the most fiscally responsible organizations” its coveted 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% 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.
