FIRE Earns Highest Charity Rating
FIRE has long been a careful steward of its supporters' gifts, and Charity Navigator, America's premier independent charity evaluator, has affirmed this record by recognizing FIRE with its highest charity rating of four stars. We have received this rating for the second consecutive year—a designation earned by only 20 percent of Charity Navigator's thousands of rated charities. A donation today will go directly to the defense of wronged college students and professors and the restoration of fundamental American freedoms on our nation's campuses. Please consider giving to FIRE so we can continue our vital work.
