Charity Navigator Recognizes Pheasants Forever with Top Charity Rating
Just as our chapters watch where every cent goes, so does your national office. Pheasants Forever recently received a 4 star rating - the highest possible - from Charity Navigator. The nonprofit wildlife habitat conservation organization received the designation based on its sound fiscal management, commitment to accountability and operational transparency. Based on Charity Navigator's standards, Pheasants Forever outperforms most other charities in America.
As a premiere charity rating service, Charity Navigator's goal is to provide donors with essential informtiaon needed to give them greater confidence in the charitable choices they make. "Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that your organization adheres to good governance and other best practices...and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way," said Ken Berger, president and CEO of Charity Navigator. Only a quarter of the charities it evaluates receive Charity Navigator's highest rating.
Receiving an exceptional designation from Charity Navigator is another factor that sets PF apart. This rating, Pheasants Forever's unique local model, a 30-year track record of outstanding habitat accomplishments and our program efficiency of 91.23 all stand out as strong reasons why supporters and donors can trust in Pheasants Forever to turn their charitable dollars into wildlife habitat.
With more than 137,000 members, making it North America's largest devotee to upland conservation, Pheasants Forever has completed more than 440,000 wildlife habitat projects which have helped create or restore 8.5 million acres of wildlife habitat in its first three decades. Included among those projects are 1,346 land acquisitions, which have permanently conserved 169,507 acres while simultaneously opening those acres to public pheasant hunting and other forms of outdoor recreation.
