WRI continues to meet the highest standards of accountability according to charity watchdog groups.

In 2015, WRI received a four-star rating from Charity Navigator for the eighth consecutive time. Four-star is their highest rating and only 2 percent of the charities they rate have received eight or more consecutive four-star evaluations, indicating that WRI outperforms most other charities in the United States in terms of sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency.

WRI posts a list of its donors and annual financial statements online for public viewing.

“Our investments in operational excellence are paying off in an unrivaled reputation for effectiveness and efficiency. In 2015, Charity Navigator, our independent auditors and two of WRI’s largest donors all awarded us their highest possible marks.”
