The Collision Repair Education Foundation has been 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 more than $20 million in product and monetary donations to high school and post-secondary collision school programs, instructors and students through the foundation. With the organization averaging 90 cents of every dollar donated being returned to this group, the Collision Repair Education Foundation says supporters can be assured that their donations are being reinvested properly.
“We are proud of this recognition as it displays the organization’s financial responsibility and hard work towards supporting the technical education of the future professionals of the industry,” said Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode. “Being listed on Charity Navigator with a select group of other noteworthy organizations will display to both current and prospective donors that our organization is one of the best in the country.”
