WildEarth Guardians’ financials – 4-star rating on Charity Navigator


WildEarth Guardians, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, works to preserve the diversity of healthy ecosystems through all of our programs. We apply that same fundamental belief to our fundraising efforts, which helps explain how and why we’ve continued to grow our budget year after year.

We have earned Charity Navigator’s 14th consecutive 4-star rating for our ability to efficiently manage and grow our finances. Only three percent of the charities Charity Navigator rates have received 14 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that we consistently execute our mission in a fiscally responsible way, outperforming most other charities.

Our policies are integral to how we work and help us meet the highest level of accountability and transparency. These include a staff whistleblower policy; document retention policy; privacy policy; and anti-discrimination policy.

As a retired federal employee with 30+ years’ experience in natural resources management and wildlife sciences, I see the work of WildEarth Guardians as critical to maintaining protections of our wildlife and wild places. Together, our voices can stem the actions of the current anti-environmental administration. Guardians has been fighting for our values for nearly 30 years. I am proud to be a supporting member, and I encourage everyone to become a member.

I support WildEarth Guardians because they are a lean, effective organization dedicated to defending the natural world. The challenges and threats to conservation have never been greater. As a conservation biologist, I see these threats firsthand and know only too well how much we need an organization willing to advocate, defend, and fight for our planet.
