The Independent Institute Wins 4-Star Rating from Charity Navigator


     
 Print 

Of 222 leading policy organizations in the United States, regularly examined by Charity Navigator, the premier evaluator of public charities, the Independent Institute ranks in the top 10% with a highest 4-Star Rating, above virtually all other think tanks. The rating is based on a weighted assessment of organizational efficiency (fundraising efficiency, fundraising expenses, program expenses, and administration expenses) and capacity (average annual growth of primary revenue, average annual growth of program expenses, and working capital ratio).

Here is a comparative sampling of public policy and advocacy organizations.
