Recently, The ALS Association received the highest levels of achievement from two different independent charity watchdog groups, Charity Navigator and GuideStar.
The nation’s largest independent charity evaluator, Charity Navigator, awarded The Association with its coveted four-star rating, affirming our organization’s commitment to fiscal transparency and accountability.
Receiving a four out of four star rating also demonstrates The Association’s pledge of adhering to financial best practices and implementing our mission statement in an economically responsible manner. According to Charity Navigator, only a quarter of the charitable organizations that it reviews receive this highly sought-after ranking.
Additionally, GuideStar awarded The Association its Gold participation level. GuideStar states that charities with its Gold level participation have shown a marked commitment to data transparency.
“These rankings would not have been possible without former President and CEO Jane Gilbert’s leadership and the hard work by staff and volunteers,” said Association President and CEO Barb Newhouse. “The Association is poised for significant advancements from the solid foothold that has been established.”
