Front Range Equine Rescue’s strong financial health, commitment to accountability, and transparency have again earned it a 4-star rating (the highest) from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent evaluator of charities.

Since 2002, by using objective analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations with its 4-star rating. In 2011, Charity Navigator added 17 additional metrics which focus 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.

On June 1, 2016, Charity Navigator upgraded its methodology for rating each charity’s’ financial health with “CN 2.1”. These enhancements further substantiate the financial health of the four-star charities.

Front Range Equine Rescue’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. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. This adds Front Range Equine Rescue to a preeminent group of charities working to overcome our world’s most pressing challenges. 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 Front Range Equine Rescue.”
