For the second year in a row, the Emergency Medicine Foundation (EMF) has earned a four-star rating, the highest possible rating awarded, from Charity Navigator. EMF’s commitment to strong financial health, accountability, and transparency earned the coveted rating. A letter from Michael Thatcher, Charity Navigator President and CEO, states that approximately a quarter of charities evaluated have received the same rating, indicating that EMF, “exceeds industry standards and outperforms most other charities in [our] area of work.”
Founded in 1972, EMF’s mission is to develop career emergency medicine researchers and improve patient care and effective health policy. To date, EMF has awarded more than $12 million in research grants to advance emergency medicine science and health policy. Thanks to its generous donors, EMF awards more than $500,000 in emergency medicine grants each year. To help EMF further the science and policy of emergency medicine, get involved.
