The Amazon Conservation Team’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have again earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. 

This is the ninth time that ACT has earned this top distinction in the last 15 years.  Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction.

In 2011, Charity Navigator added 17 metrics, focused on governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness, to its ratings methodology.  These Accountability & Transparency metrics, which account for 50 percent of a charity’s overall rating, help to reveal which charities operate in accordance with industry best practices and whether they are open with their donors and stakeholders.
