Financial Disclosure and Annual Reports
Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator, again awarded in May 2017 the Institute for Free Speech a 4-star rating, the top ranking. The rating is based on fiscal management and best practices in good governance.
Charity Navigator began its evaluation of the Institute for Free Speech in 2015 and we earned the top ranking in both 2015 and 2016.
According to a 2015 letter we received from Ken Berger, then the President and CEO of Charity Navigator, “Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that your organization adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way…. This ‘exceptional’ designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Institute for Free Speech from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”
While your evaluation of our impact is most important to us, this external rating from Charity Navigator shows that we work every day to run an effective organization and to put your contributions to good use in promoting and defending the First Amendment right to political free speech.
Charity Navigator’s report on the Institute is available here.
Below are links to copies of recent annual reports, audited financial statements, and IRS Form 990s. In 2017, the Institute for Free Speech changed its name from the Center for Competitive Politics. All reports and forms prior to 2016 were filed under that name.
