Trail Conference Achieves 4-Star Charity Navigator Rating



Charity Navigator 4-Star RatingThe Trail Conference has recently achieved Charity Navigator’s highest ranking, the coveted 4-star rating for our sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency.  

This “exceptional designation” (four out of a possible four stars) differentiates the Trail Conference from other charities and indicates adherence to good governance and best practices that demonstrate trustworthiness to the public. 

Highly productive and volunteer-intensive organizations like the Trail Conference often find themselves at a disadvantage in achieving a 4-star rating, due to the administrative costs of coordinating such a large volunteer labor force.  The Trail Conference now maintains over 2,200 miles of trails, engages thousands of volunteers, and contributes over 70,000 hours of labor annually.  Our strong fiscal health, accountability, transparency and effectiveness were all factors in pushing us over the top to a 4-star rating.
