”Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that Georgia Historical Society exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in this area of work. Only 1 percent of the charities we evaluate have received at least eleven consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Georgia Historical Society outperforms most other charities in America,” said Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator. “This exceptional designation sets Georgia Historical Society apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”
Since 2002, using objective analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. In 2011, Charity Navigator added seventeen metrics, focused on governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness, to its ratings methodology.
