Salk earns third consecutive Charity Navigator four-star rating

Charity Navigator

For the third straight year, Charity Navigator, the nation's largest evaluator of nonprofit business and financial operations, has awarded Salk a four-star rating for "sound fiscal management." This top designation was determined after a team of professional analysts examined tens of thousands of nonprofit financial documents.

"We are proud to announce that the Salk Institute for Biological Studies has earned our four-star rating for its fiscal health and commitment to accountability and transparency," said Ken Berger, president and CEO of Charity Navigator. "Only 11 percent of the charities we evaluate have received our highest rating three years in a row, indicating that the Salk Institute for Biological Studies executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way and outperforms most other charities in America. This 'exceptional' designation...demonstrates to the public [that] it is worthy of their trust."
