CCP Earns Highest Rating from Charity Navigator

For the third year in a row, the Center for Competitive Politics (CCP) was awarded the highest possible rating by Charity Navigator for “demonstrating strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency.”

Charity Navigator’s coveted 4-star rating indicates that CCP exceeds industry standards in pursuing our mission in a financially efficient way. CCP earned 95 out of a possible 100 points, its highest rating to date.

Charity Navigator first started rating CCP in 2015, and the initial rating started at 4 stars. The new rating came out on May 1, 2017.

“We are pleased to be recognized for our success in making sure every donor’s contribution is used as effectively and efficiently as possible,” said CCP President David Keating. “Earning the trust of our supporters is critical to our ability to defend the First Amendment across the country.”

Charity Navigator President and CEO Michael Thatcher congratulated CCP in a letter.

“Only 27% of the charities we evaluate have received at least 2 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Center for Competitive Politics outperforms most other charities in America,” he wrote. “This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets Center for Competitive Politics apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”

Charity Navigator’s data-driven analysis of charitable organizations has been profiled in Forbes, Business Week, and Kiplinger’s Financial Magazine, among others. It is America’s largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities.

The Center for Competitive Politics is now the Institute for Free Speech.
