The Great Plains Institute was recognized for the fourth consecutive year as a top nonprofit in the United States for financial health, accountability, and transparency by the nation’s largest charity evaluator, Charity Navigator.
Charity Navigator has information on 1.5 million nonprofits and offers assessments on a subset of the top organizations to enable donors to compare charities on a detailed set of performance metrics.
The four-star rating demonstrates GPI’s national leadership as a trusted nonprofit and places us in the top 15 percent of nonprofits in the country.
According to Charity Navigator’s president and CEO Michael Thatcher, “Attaining the four-star rating verifies that the Great Plains Institute exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets the Great Plains Institute apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”
Achieving this recognition for a fourth year shows GPI’s continued commitment to fiscal health and responsibility. The trust of our donors and funders is of paramount importance to GPI and critical if we are to achieve our mission to transform the energy system. As we celebrate our 20th anniversary this year, we want to thank our donors, funders, and partners who have invested in GPI’s transformational work and make it possible for us to increase our impact on a local, regional, and national scale.
