Charity Navigator awards CCLP four-star ranking for the fourth consecutive year

Denver, COColorado Center on Law and Policy is pleased to announce that its strong financial health, transparency, and commitment to accountability has earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the fourth consecutive year in which CCLP has earned the top distinction. 

Since 2002, using objective analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. In 2011, Charity Navigator added 17 metrics, focused on governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness, to its ratings methodology. These Accountability & Transparency metrics, which account for 50 percent of a charity’s overall rating, reveal which charities operate in accordance with industry best practices and whether they are open with their donors and stakeholders. 

“Colorado Center on Law and Policy’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. This adds CCLP to a preeminent group of charities working to overcome our world’s most pressing challenges. Based on its 4-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support CCLP.” 

“It’s important to CCLP that our donors and funding institutions trust we’re using their contributions wisely in our shared fight against poverty,” said Tiffani Lennon, Executive Director of CCLP. “Our 4-star Charity Navigator rating is a testament to our good governance, financial accountability and the dedication of our entire CCLP staff.”
