The D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center has earned a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. The rating recognizes the Pro Bono Center’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency. This is the eighth time that the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center has earned this top distinction in the last ten years.

Based on Charity Navigator’s rating criteria, the four-star rating indicates that the Pro Bono Center “adheres to sector best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way.” Only 28% of all rated charities have achieved the distinction of at least two consecutive 4-star evaluations, meaning that the Pro Bono Center outperforms most other charities in America.

The Pro Bono Center was evaluated using financial performance metrics such as program, administrative, and fundraising expenses; fundraising efficiency; accountability and transparency metrics; and financial capacity performance metrics.
