For the 7th consecutive year, Ashoka has been awarded the highest possible rating as a philanthropic organization in an evaluation by Charity Navigator for 2008. Charity Navigator is an independent evaluator that rates the fiscal health of charity organizations. By evaluating charities on their organizational efficiency and organizational capacity, Charity Navigator calculates how well organizations spend their money on what it’s intended for; their programs and services.
Ashoka’s 7th consecutive achievement of a 4-star rating is very rare, and achieved by few other organizations in the field. Only 1% of the organizations reviewed by Charity Evaluator have received at least 7 times a 4 star-rating, indicating that Ashoka outperforms the large majority of its peers.
