The RAEX rating agency (RAEX-Analytics) together with the Association of Rating Compilers (ARC) prepared a pilot rating of charitable non-profit organizations (NPO). The rating characterizes the level of partnership potential of charitable organizations: their financial, organizational, methodological, media opportunities, as well as their authority regarding other comparable organizations.
The rating included 293 NPOs, the total amount of receipts in which in 2018 amounted to 44.8 billion rubles (the rating of fundraising charitable NPOs was 213 NPOs and 19.2 billion rubles, the rating of corporate and private charitable NPOs was 80 NPOs and 25.6 billion rubles respectively). According to RAEX, this is about 90% of total donations to organized charity in Russia.
“The rating may become one of the factors contributing to the development of this sector, which is extremely important for Russian society,” comments Dmitry Grishankov, CEO of RAEX. - This is the most convenient positioning tool for leading charities. It will also help make rational decisions for both donors and potential partners of a charitable NPO. Finally, it will contribute to increasing the transparency of the sector and solving the problem of “toxic” charity. ”
The rating included Russian NPOs, the proceeds of which in 2018 exceeded 10 million rubles, carrying out charitable activities in one or more of the following areas:
- charity medical care;
- support and adaptation of socially vulnerable groups of citizens;
- education and science;
- ecology and animal protection;
- sport;
- art and culture.
Due to the specifics of the activities, the rating did not include funds, NPOs associated with religious organizations and law enforcement agencies, local community foundations, and organizations that position themselves as structural units of international charitable foundations and use their public names. Also, the rating did not include charitable foundations created exclusively to finance individual projects or programs.
The rating was based on three groups of indicators: the scale of the activities of NPO, information transparency of the activities of NPO, public recognition and activity of NPO in the media and social networks.
