4star234x60Much to our delight, for the first time the San Diego Museum of Man has received a four-star rating — the best possible — from Charity Navigator, a well-known service that vets nonprofit organizations. Lest you think it’s easy to get, check out some of the considerations:

  • a good ratio of working capital compared to expenses
  • a good ratio of fundraising expenses compared to functional expenses
  • a high level of fundraising efficiency
  • documentation of all board meetings and ethical board practices
  • audited financials (which we do annually)
  • and more.
