NARF Receives 3 Star Rating from Charity Navigator

The Native American Rights Fund (NARF) has been upgraded to a three-star (of a possible four) rating by Charity Navigator, the nation’s leading charity watchdog group. Charity Navigator’s evaluations of a charity’s Financial Health --- which examine how a charity manages its finances day to day and how financially well-positioned it is in order to sustain its programs over time --- have helped millions of donors make better giving decisions impacting billions of dollars of donations each year.

“We are very pleased to be recognized by Charity Navigator in this way,” said Morgan O’Brien, NARF Director of Development. “We have worked hard to improve in all areas of efficiency and transparency.”

NARF is the largest nonprofit law firm dedicated to protecting tribal sovereignty and enforcing treaty rights. NARF also helps protect the rights of Native Americans to practice their traditional religions, speak their own languages and enjoy their cultures.

Charity Navigator, America's premiere independent charity evaluator, works to advance a more efficient and responsive philanthropic marketplace by evaluating the Financial Health and Accountability and Transparency of America's largest charities.

“In these difficult economic times, we’re thrilled to give donors more information to help them determine which charities they support are efficient and accountable,” said Ken Berger, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. “So, for the first time since launching our charity rating service nearly 10 years ago, we’ve made a major enhancement to our rating system. We know that donors will welcome this change as it gives them more knowledge to do more good.”
