High charity ratings from Charity Navigator underscore our leadership as an international conservation organization and a responsible charity. You can feel confident with Charity Navigator’s high charity rating that your donation to the Conservancy will make a difference by helping expand the scope, scale and pace of conservation efforts on the local and global levels.
The Nature Conservancy’s high charity ratings with Charity Navigator were achieved from America's premier independent charity evaluator because we exceed industry standards and outperform most other public charities and many other environmental charities in terms of efficiency, capacity and financial health.
In April 2010, Charity Navigator ranked the Conservancy among its top 10 household name charities saying, "Givers should feel confident that these national institutions put their donations to good use." Whether you support the Conservancy on a monthly basis as a Friend of the Conservancy or choose to help our natural world with a one-time donation, your gift puts you at the center of critical conservation projects underway all across the globe each and every day.
Charity Navigator helps inform donors about their charitable giving —including enabling people to feel confident about their choices of charities to support. Charity Navigator also strives to highlight effective and efficient charities and organizations.
“Our approach to rating charities is driven by those two objectives: helping givers and celebrating the work of charities.” –Charity Navigator Web Site
The Conservancy also holds superlative ratings from many other charity watchdog organizations, including the Better Business Bureau (BBB) Wise Giving Alliance and the American Institute of Philanthropy.
Since our founding in 1951, who we are and how we work has made the Conservancy so successful — and makes us optimistic that we can expand that great conservation work to meet the challenges ahead.
As a leading, global conservation organization, we address the most pressing conservation threats on a large scale. Supported by over a million people and consistently receiving high charity ratings from Charity Navigator, we act — every day — to protect ecologically vital lands and waters for nature and people.
At the Conservancy, our vision and mission lead us to rely on science and trust in people. We effectively use the support of people like you to pursue non-confrontational, pragmatic solutions to conservation challenges, and we partner with indigenous communities, businesses, governments, multilateral institutions, and other non-profits.
