Georgia Historical Society Receives 4-Star Charity Navigator Rating for Fourth Consecutive Year


Savannah, Ga., September 5, 2013 - The Georgia Historical Society today announced that they have earned their fourth consecutive 4-Star rating from Charity Navigator, America's largest independent charity evaluator.

"On behalf of Charity Navigator, I wish to congratulate Georgia Historical Society on achieving our coveted 4-star rating for sound fiscal management," said Ken Berger, President & C.E.O. of Charity Navigator in a letter to GHS.  "Only six percent of the charities we rate have received at least four consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Georgia Historical Society outperforms most other charities in America.  This 'exceptional' designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Georgia Historical Society from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust."

Charity Navigator is the largest charity evaluator in America, and its website attracts more visitors than all other charity rating groups combined.  Charity Navigator accepts no advertising or donations from the organizations it evaluates, ensuring unbiased evaluations, nor does it charge the public for this trusted data.  Charity Navigator awards only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating by reviewing seventeen governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness.

"It is important that donors know we are committed to responsible stewardship of our funding and I commend Laura García-Culler, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer, and the GHS Board of Curators for setting and maintaining an exceptional standard of fiscal responsibility throughout the organization," said Dr. W. Todd Groce, President & C.E.O. of the Georgia Historical Society.  "To be recognized by Charity Navigator helps to assure donors that their charitable gifts are being used ethically and efficiently as we fulfill the educational mission and work of the Georgia Historical Society."
