ASF achieves highest ratings from two top organizations
“We are honored to receive the highest ratings possible from both Charity Navigator and GuideStar. These distinctions reflect our accountability to all our constituencies and commitment to remain true to our mission of providing sports and recreation opportunities for people with disabilities.”
-Todd Munn, Executive Director of the Adaptive Sports Foundation
Charity Navigator, America’s largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities, has awarded the Adaptive Sports Foundation the prestigious 4-star rating for good governance, sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency.
Charity Navigator works to help charitable givers make intelligent giving decisions by providing information on more than five thousand charities nationwide and by evaluating their financial health. It calculates each charity’s score based upon several broad criteria, including how much is spent per dollar raised, what percentage of funds goes to programs vs. administrative and fund-raising expenses, and the organization’s long-term financial health. It then assigns a rating from one to four, with four being the best rating. Adaptive Sports Foundation has earned four stars with Charity Navigator.
