Ruffed Grouse Society Receives Charity Navigator's Highest Rating
Coraopolis, PA –-(Ammoland.com)- For the second time in four years, Charity Navigator — the largest charity evaluator in America — has given the Ruffed Grouse Society (RGS) a 4-Star rating for “…its ability to efficiently allocate and grow its finances.”
Based on the most current financial information, Charity Navigator has determined that RGS outperforms most charities in America in its efforts to operate a ‘fiscally responsible' organization that spends its money fulfilling its mission.
The coveted 4-star rating is the highest charity rating available for a non-profit organization.
According to Ken Berger, Charity Navigator’s President and CEO, approximately only a quarter of the charities evaluated have received our highest rating; indicating that the Ruffed Grouse Society executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way.
“This ‘exceptional' rating differentiates the Ruffed Grouse Society from its peers and proves that it's worthy of the public's trust,” Berger said in making the announcement.
“Upon learning of the prestigious recognition, Ruffed Grouse Society President and CEO Mike Zagata said, “The Ruffed Grouse Society is once again proud to be featured by Charity Navigator for living up to the high standards set within the nonprofit sector. This recognition is a tribute to the men and women who conduct the day-to-day operations, the team of biologists who work with landowners to improve conditions for ruffed grouse, woodcock and other species, including more than 80 species of songbirds, and to the thousands of dedicated volunteers who help make our fundraiser banquets and special events the success they have become. All should be proud that their efforts have been recognized.”
Established in 1961, the Ruffed Grouse Society is an international wildlife conservation organization dedicated to promoting conditions suitable for ruffed grouse, American woodcock and related wildlife to sustain our hunting tradition and outdoor heritage.
