At the Arthritis National Research Foundation, we’d like to extend a special thank you to all the individual men and women who so generously choose to support the Arthritis National Research Foundation from hundreds of charitable choices. This past year alone, over 900 donors from all fifty states – and those serving overseas – chose to give a portion of their livelihoods to the foundation, trusting us to wisely invest their dollars in the critical research needed to lead us to more effective arthritis treatments. Thanks in great part to your generosity, the foundation has been able to increase its support of the research needed to put an end to these debilitating diseases one day.
When you make a pledge you want to know that your donation is going to the best charity and that your gift is being used wisely. So how do you know you are choosing the best charity?
The first way to tell is to examine how much of every dollar is placed into programs. Low over head is a key factor in examining a charity’s efficiency. At the Arthritis National Research Foundation, we understand that our mission to cure arthritis is most important you. Research is the key to making that happen. That is why we continue to keep our overhead expenses low and maintain that 91 cents of every dollar goes directly into arthritis research programs.
To back up our claim we refer individuals to the leading online independent charity evaluator, Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator has awarded the foundation its highest, four-star rating since they began rating the Arthritis National Research Foundation four years ago. In their words, the Arthritis National Research Foundation, “Exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in its cause.”
