The Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation Earns Coveted 4-Star Rating from Charity Navigator for the 8th Consecutive Year

March 11, 2019

New York, NY, March 2019 – 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 8th year in a row. Fisher Center received a perfect score of 100, placing the organization in the top 1% out of the 9,128 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 and 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.

“It is an honor for our Trustees and staff to be awarded with a 4-star rating maintaining our Foundation in the top performing charities cohort. Our founder, Zachary Fisher, would be proud of what we have achieved with his legacy towards finding a cure for Alzheimer’s,” said Lucretia Holden, Senior Vice President of the Fisher Center.
