We take stewardship of your gift very seriously. This year, The Jed Foundation (JED) received its sixth consecutive 4-star rating from Charity Navigator. Attaining a 4-star rating, the highest possible rating, means that JED “exceeds industry standards…adheres to sector best practices, and executes its mission in a financially efficient way.” It also demonstrates JED’s commitment to accountability and stewardship of donor contributions. Only 13% of charities evaluated by Charity Navigator have received six consecutive 4-star evaluations.

JED is also a Platinum-level participant with GuideStar, demonstrating our commitment to transparency, and an accredited charity by the Better Business Bureau.
