December 5, 2019 — Press Release

Boston – The National Consumer Law Center’s (NCLC)  strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the third consecutive time that NCLC has earned this top distinction. Only 25% of the charities evaluated have received at least 3 consecutive 4-star evaluations.

Since 2002, Charity Navigator has used over two dozen accountability and transparency metrics to award only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. This rating distinguishes charities that operate in accordance with industry best practices  and are open with their donors and stakeholders.

“The National Consumer Law Center’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. “Based on its 4-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support NCLC.”
