Sierra Nevada Journeys earns ‘strong’ charity rating



Sierra Nevada Journeys, a local non-profit organization providing experiential learning opportunities to children, recently received a “strong” charity score from NPcatalyst. The score recognizes the organization as a “strong” candidate for charitable support, based on its scoring in five areas of operational performance.

NPcatalyst, a Reno-based philanthropic solutions company, rates non-profit organizations using an elaborate analysis of operational efficiencies and procedures. The rating system addresses five key management indicators to derive a true analysis of the organization’s effectiveness.

“We’re proud to award Sierra Nevada Journeys, our most recent HealthCheck participant, with a ‘strong’ rating. The locally-based organization was very interested in receiving a charity rating, as a means of improving performance and leveraging it for increased support.” says Pete Parker, NPcatalyst’s managing partner.

Initially unsure about how the HealthCheck tool would impact his organization, Jonathan Mueller, SNJ’s executive director soon realized the long-lasting value. “What I’m coming to understand about the value of this Healthcheck process is not necessarily the rating itself (though that’s important), but the best-practices it ends up prompting. To that end NPCatalyst is doing great work ensuring that we’re adhering to those best practices.”

A profile illustrating the charity rating can be found on the NPcatalyst website, located at www.NPcatalyst.com. For additional information on the HealthCheck program, contact NPcatalyst at 775-333-9444.
