The Lupus Research Alliance’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it the coveted 4-star rating – the highest given – from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent evaluator of U.S. charities. The Lupus Research Alliance has earned this top distinction every year since it was founded in 2016.
Using objective analysis since 2002, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. The Lupus Research Alliance is the only national lupus organization to have earned this highest rating.
“We are proud to announce the Lupus Research Alliance has earned our fourth consecutive 4-star rating. This is our highest possible rating and indicates that they adhere to sector best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way.,” according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. “Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that Lupus Research Alliance exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work. Only 21% of the charities we evaluate have received at least 4 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Lupus Research Alliance outperforms most other charities in America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets Lupus Research Alliance apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”
“We are very proud to have earned this distinction,” said Lupus Research Alliance Chief Finance and Administrative Officer Debra Rose. “This top designation from the highly respected Charity Navigator is further affirmation that our donors can trust we are using their donations wisely to accomplish our mission – to transform the lives of people with lupus through the power of science.”
