WPC receives four-star rating from Charity Navigator

Charity Navigator Four Stars

The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy is committed to using the funds that we receive from our donors effectively – to directly support science-based land and water conservation, community greening, and public education at Fallingwater.

We are proud to announce that WPC has received a four-star rating (out of a possible four stars) for efficient financial management from Charity Navigator, America's largest independent evaluator of charities.

This rating, the second four-star rating in a row for WPC, was based on the Conservancy’s demonstrated ability to efficiently manage and grow its finances. “Only 19% of the charities we rate have received at least two consecutive four-star evaluations, indicating that the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way, and outperforms most other charities in America,” said Ken Berger, President and Chief Executive Officer of Charity Navigator.

“This ‘exceptional’ designation from Charity Navigator differentiates the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust,” Berger said.

Charity Navigator applies data-driven analysis to the charitable sector, using a method that has been profiled in Forbes, Business Week and Kiplinger’s Financial Magazine. It evaluates ten times more charities than its nearest competitor, making it the nation’s leading charity evaluator.
