A handful of Tucson-based community-benefit organizations have been added to our charity ratings list.
Because of NPcatalyst’s connection to and long-time interest in Tucson, we have begun to screen local organizations and add them to our HealthCheck charity ratings list. The intent is to provide valuable “insider” and research-based information to potential donors, volunteers, and job-seekers, as they make their charitable decisions.
Thirteen of the initial 16 organizations placed on the ratings list have received an initial “efficiency” rating. The rating is a scoring of the organization’s finances as found in its most recent Form 990. Ratings range from Fair to Ideal. These organizations, and all other active 501(c)3 organizations are invited to participate in a complete HealthCheck process, where an in-depth analysis is conducted in the areas of Finance & Fund Development, Governance, Human Resources, and Public Information. The organization will receive numerical scores in each category, as well as an overall score. In addition, a best practices guide will be developed, providing suggestions for improvement in each of the categories.
Our HealthCheck process is very objective and has become an outstanding resource for private foundations, local businesses, and philanthropic leaders as they make their charitable decisions.
If there’s an organization missing from this list, drop a line to email@example.com or 775-333-9444 and we’ll add it to our growing list of organizations to screen.
