OUR CHARITY NAVIGATOR RANKING
The Rotary Foundation has received the highest ranking from Charity Navigator for the past ten years. The exceptional charities on their Top 100 list execute their missions in a fiscally responsible way while adhering to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities. The Rotary Foundation has earned perfect scores for its Financial Health and its Accountability & Transparency. Those two scores then translate into a perfect 100 point overall score. Less than one percent of the thousands of charities rated by Charity Navigator have earned perfect scores.
