Among American Museums, the Chrysler Earned the 2013 Top Mark in Fiscal Management
For those who have contributed to the Chrysler, and for those who are considering it, we are happy to report that we are the top-rated museum in America according to the country's leading independent philanthropic evaluator.
Charity Navigator evaluates thousands of U.S.-based non-profit organizations each year, and awards up to four stars based on a wide range of criteria. Evaluations are not only made on financial health but also the transparency with which financial details are made public.
We were quite pleased with our four star rating, but were even more pleased when we saw Charity Navigator's Holiday Giving Guide, which ranked us No. 1 among U.S. museums. Out of a possible score of 70, the Chrysler posted a 69.02.
Said Museum Director William Hennessey: "Financial responsibility and institutional transparency are key values at the Chrysler. They lie at the heart of our commitment to our donors and to the community we serve."
Said Brian Wells, development director: "We are delighted that Charity Navigator has discerned what our donors have known for years, that the Chrysler is a conscientious steward of the contributions and trust placed in our care."
