Brandeis again receives highest rating from leading charity evaluator

cnavigatorFor the third consecutive year, Brandeis has received the highest rating possible from a leading charity evaluator, which praised the University’s ability to manage its finances in a competitive philanthropic world.

Charity Navigator (, which evaluates the financial health of more than 5,400 of America's largest charities, again awarded Brandeis a four-star rating (exceptional) for its sound fiscal management. Just 11 percent of the charities that the organization evaluates have earned the four-star rating three straight years.

“Brandeis University consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way, and outperforms most other charities in America,” Charity Navigator President and CEO Ken Berger announced. “This ‘exceptional’ designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Brandeis University from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”

“We are proud that Brandeis has earned this special distinction from Charity Navigator,” said Nancy Winship, P ’10, P ’12, Brandeis’s senior vice president of institutional advancement. “This reinforces what our donors have long known: This is a University worth investing in and every dollar that we raise is spent prudently.”
