PHOENIX – The Goldwater Institute has been awarded a four star rating, the highest possible, by Charity Navigator.
Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest charity evaluator, applies an objective rating system to help donors assess the financial health of more than 5,000 American charities. According to CharityNavigator.org, this system examines “how responsibly (the charity) functions day to day as well as how well positioned it is to sustain its programs over time.”
“The four star rating is a testament to the Goldwater Institute’s commitment to responsible budgeting and spending in the fight for liberty,” said Darcy Olsen, president and CEO of the Goldwater Institute.
The Goldwater Institute is an independent government watchdog supported by people who are committed to expanding free enterprise and liberty. The Institute develops innovative, principled solutions to pressing issues facing the states and enforces constitutionally limited government through litigation. The Institute focuses its work on expanding economic freedom and educational opportunity, bringing transparency to government, and protecting the rights guaranteed to Americans by the U.S. and state constitutions. The Goldwater Institute was founded in 1988 with Barry Goldwater’s blessing.
