Our groundbreaking advocacy for limited government, free enterprise, and personal responsibility is earning distinctions from across the nonprofit sector.
For nearly 25 years, Acton has worked hard to produce a wide range of content that is truly unique. We view individual liberty as essential but not sufficient, leading us to emphasize the vital role of faith and responsibility in life and society. At the same time, we have toiled to ensure that our work is first-rate, with our conferences, scholarly material, and media products achieving continually high levels of satisfaction.
As Acton continues to grow, so too does its reputation. Indeed, nonprofit-ranking organizations now recognize Acton for its operational effectiveness and unique contributions to the educational space.
Early this year, the University of Pennsylvania’s Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program ranked Acton one of the top think tanks in the U.S., as well as one of the top social policy organizations in the world. Due in large part to Acton’s PovertyCure initiative, we also ranked in the top 20 of the “Best Advocacy Campaign” category, joining organizations such as The Heritage Foundation and Amnesty International. The study’s rankings are based on surveys completed by some 1,500 journalists, scholars, policymakers, and think tank executives.
Acton has also received high marks from Charity Navigator, the best-known organization ranking nonprofits on grounds of accountability, transparency, and financial performance. After submitting a host of information—tax documents, audits, privacy policies, and even the last version of this report—Charity Navigator awarded us high scores in every category. By virtue of our four-star ranking, Charity Navigator believes that Acton “exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in its cause.”
