New York, NY, April 2018 – The Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation’s outstanding financial stewardship and commitment to accountability and transparency has earned the organization a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator, for the 7th year in a row. Fisher Center received a score of 98.23, placing the organization in the top 3% out of the 9,068 charities rated.
Since 2002, using objective, data-driven analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. Specifically, Charity Navigator’s rating system examines two broad areas of a charity’s performance; their Financial Health and their Accountability & Transparency. Charity Navigator’s ratings show donors how efficiently they believe a charity will use their support today, how well it has sustained its programs and services over time and their level of commitment to good governance, best practices and openness with information.
“The board, Dr. Greengard, and I are excited by this honor which places us in the top 3% of charities,” said Kent Karosen, President and CEO of the Fisher Center.
