Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

MISSOULA, Mont. --(Ammoland.com)- The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation again garnered the highest rating available from Charity Navigator, America’s leading charity evaluator.

“This 4-star rating speaks volumes for our staff and volunteers,” said David Allen, RMEF president and CEO. “It’s yet another indication of RMEF’s commitment and adherence to sound fiscal management, accountability and transparency.”

Charity Navigator highlights the work of efficient, ethical and open charities. Its stated goal is to provide donors with essential information needed to give them greater confidence in the charitable choices they make.

“Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that your organization adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way,” said Ken Berger, president and CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only 3 percent of the charities we rate have received at least 6 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation outperforms most other charities in America.”

Charity Navigator data shows RMEF spends only seven percent on administrative costs and 2.8 percent on fundraising costs. Therefore, 90.2 cents of every dollar that RMEF spends go directly into its mission of ensuring the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage.

Forbes, Business Week, and Kiplinger’s Financial Magazine, among others, featured Charity Navigator’s unique method of applying data-driven analysis to the charitable sector. Charity Navigator estimates that its 2013 ratings influenced approximately $10 billion in charitable gifts.

“This ‘exceptional’ designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust,” added Berger.
