ASHBA Earned a “Give with Confidence” Rating from Charity Navigator

Published Date: Apr 21, 2021

 

American Saddlebred Horse and Breeders Association is proud to announce that its strong financial health and ongoing accountability and transparency have earned an 88/100 rating from Charity Navigator’s Encompass Rating System. This score designates American Saddlebred Horse Association as an official “Give with Confidence” charity, indicating that our organization is using its donations effectively based on Charity Navigator’s criteria. Charity Navigator is America’s largest and most-utilized independent charity evaluator. Since 2001, the organization has been an unbiased and trusted source of information for more than 8.5 million users annually.

The Encompass Rating System is a comprehensive evaluation tool that analyzes nonprofit performance based on four key indicators, referred to as beacons. Currently, nonprofits can earn scores for the Finance & Accountability, Impact & Results, and Culture & Community beacons. In the coming months, nonprofits will also have the opportunity to earn scores for the Leadership & Adaptability beacon.

The Encompass Rating System enables Charity Navigator to increase the number of nonprofits it evaluates, growing from 9,000 to 160,000+ nonprofits evaluated. In order to be more inclusive of smaller and more recently established nonprofits, the system uses a combination of automated methods and technology-supported manual research and analysis to provide donors and nonprofits with four clearly-visualized indicators of organizational effectiveness.

“We are delighted to provide American Saddlebred Horse Association with third-party accreditation that validates their operational excellence,” said Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator. “We are eager to see the good work that the organization is able to accomplish in the years ahead.”

 “Our Charity Navigator rating of 88 out of 100 through their Encompass Rating System is further validation that our supporters can trust our commitment to good governance and making the world a better place,” said David Mount, Executive Director. “We hope that it will introduce our work to new supporters who can help us advance our mission to promote and protect the American Saddlebred horse with the highest standards of integrity and guarantee the purity of the breed through the recording of pedigrees and the transfer of ownership of the American Saddlebred Horse.

“Be on the lookout in the next few weeks for ASHBAs first Giddy Up & Give Annual Campaign, help us fill up the donation bucket!  Our goal is 100% participation; we aim high because we trot high!” If you are inspired to support our mission now visit saddlebred.com and give a gift today! Questions?
