We are proud to announce that the Museum of Us has earned its sixth consecutive 4-star rating from Charity Navigator; America’s leading charity evaluator.

A 4-star rating is Charity Navigator’s highest possible rating and demonstrates our organization’s commitment to accountability and transparency. Only 11% of charities evaluated by Charity Navigator have received at least 6 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that the Museum of Us adheres to best practices of our sector, and exceeds industry standards.

We are proud to demonstrate our trustworthiness to the public as a non-profit 501 (c) (3), and will continue to execute our mission of, “Inspiring human connections by exploring the human experience” in a financially efficient and responsible way.

Thank you to our amazing staff, board, and volunteers for working hard to create an organization that is healthy, accountable, and transparent!

This rating is based off of the Museum’s Fiscal Year 2019 data, which runs from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019.
