Collision Repair Education Foundation Awarded Highest Ranking from Charity Navigator

In August 2014, the Collision Repair Education Foundation was awarded the highest rating for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency by Charity Navigator, the country’s largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities.

Charity Navigator awarded the Collision Repair Education Foundation an “exceptional” ranking of four stars out of a possible four, demonstrating adherence to good governance and fiscal responsibility.

Since 2009, the collision industry has provided over $20 million in product and monetary donations to high school and post-secondary collision school programs, instructors, and students through the Education Foundation. With the organization averaging 90 cents of every dollar donated being returned to this group; its supporters can be assured that their donations are being reinvested properly.

Charity Navigator provides essential information that gives donors greater confidence in charitable choices they support. Receiving four stars indicates the Education Foundation is respected by its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.
