EJI Tops List of Civil Rights Organizations


EJI is the highest rated Civil Rights and Advocacy charity, according to Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities.

Charity Navigator’s professional analysts examine tens of thousands of non-profit financial documents to develop an unbiased, objective, numbers-based rating system to assess more than 6000 of the country’s charities. The rating system examines two broad areas of a charity’s performance: financial health and accountability and transparency.

EJI earned Charity Navigator’s highest four-star ranking.

In addition, Charity Navigator is now featuring EJI as the highest rated Civil Rights and Advocacy organization in its Holiday Giving Guide, a quick reference guide to the highest and lowest-rated charity in each cause they evaluate that’s designed to help donors make intelligent giving decisions during the holiday season.

We are committed to working for justice and fairness for the poor, disadvantaged, and incarcerated. And we will continue to advocate for more hopeful solutions to the violence, powerlessness, and despair that plague many marginalized communities.

EJI deeply appreciates Charity Navigator’s recognition. We hope you will join the work of EJI this holiday season by¬†making a contribution!
