The AST Retains Charity Navigator "4-Star" Rating

Monday, December 11, 2017

The American Society of Transplantation (AST) has earned the highest, four-star rating from online charity evaluator, Charity Navigator, for the third consecutive year.

The AST's strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator.

Since 2002, using objective analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. In 2011, Charity Navigator added 17 metrics, focused on governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness, to its ratings methodology. These Accountability & Transparency metrics, which account for 50 percent of a charity’s overall rating, reveal which charities operate in accordance with industry best practices and whether they are open with their donors and stakeholders. On June 1, 2016, we upgraded our methodology for rating each charity’s’ financial health with CN 2.1. These enhancements further substantiates the financial health of our four star charities.
