The Farnsworth Art Museum is proud of its four-star rating by Charity Navigator — the highest possible rating. Charity Navigator is an independent, non-profit organization that evaluates American charities. Its stated goal is "to advance a more efficient and responsive philanthropic marketplace by evaluating the financial health of America's largest charities." They rate charities by evaluating two broad areas of performance; Financial Health and Accountability & Transparency. Charity Navigator's ratings show givers how efficiently a charity will use their support today, how well it has sustained its programs and services over time and their level of commitment to being accountable and transparent. According to Charity Navigator's web site, they provide these ratings so that givers can make intelligent giving decisions, and so that the philanthropic community can more effectively monitor itself.
The Farnsworth Art Museum is one of only 31 museums nationwide that enjoy a four-star rating by Charity Navigator — and the only Arts and Culture organization in the State of Maine with such a coveted rating.
