What is World Bicycle Relief's Charity Navigator Score?

World Bicycle Relief’s rating on Charity Navigator is a solid  3 out of 4 stars.  


Why not 4 stars?

Charity Navigator’s current evaluation model only considers information reported on the United States IRS Form 990 and thus fails to take into account World Bicycle Relief’s global platform of 5 fundraising countries, 6 African program countries and the impact of bicycles that have been deployed in 19 developing countries. WBR’s US IRS Form 990 does not include a significant portion of its global operations, therefore providing a somewhat inaccurate view of WBR’s total impact and its global operational efficiency.


World Bicycle Relief has delivered over 430,000 new bicycles in 19 countries since its founding in 2005. WBR is committed to maintaining a disciplined ratio as a high growth organization that is eleven years old while investing in increased monitoring & evaluation, program expansion into new countries, and program refinements to increase impact.
