The Arthritis National Research Foundation continues to receive Charity Navigator’s, the leading online charity evaluator, highest rating. For the twelve consecutive year, ANRF received the 4-star rating, making it one of the top 1% of charities in the country. Charity Navigator uses a variety of metrics based on financial performance, accountability and transparency as well as additional beacons including leadership, adaptability, culture and community.

Rated as one of the best charities in the country, each year ANRF undergoes a thorough audit by an independent accounting firm, which examines every transaction, resulting in an audited financial statement that demonstrates transparency and accountability. This is a best practice for America’s best charities. Below are the audited financial statements, 990’s and Annual report. Contained inside are the same numbers that have given Charity Navigator the ability to call the ANRF one of the best charities in America, ranking in the top 1% in the nation by receiving their coveted 4-star rating for twelve consecutive years.
