A note about the star rating of Heal the Bay: Charity Navigator currently rates non-profit organizations on two criteria, finance and accountability/transparency. Heal the Bay still maintains four stars on accountability and transparency, but is rated much lower on finance. Charity Navigator's finance rating is based on year over year numbers, and ranks groups that are growing in revenue and program expense at a higher level. Last year, due to a number of factors, Heal The Bay did have a revenue decrease in comparison to the previous year. Therefore, Charity Navigator dropped our rating. The efficiency of our programs, education, and advocacy are still top notch and fueled by our mission. We are working diligently to increase our contributions and donations this year so that we can continue our important work.

Role: Professional with expertise in this field
Rating: 1 stars  

Heal the Bay's ED and now Acting ED conduct unethical and unprofessional activities. They also mislead supporters and actually lie to the hard working employees and volunteers. They spread false rumors about those working with it and will throw anyone under the bus at anytime. Change at the top is needed to begin healing Heal the Bay. In the meantime, STAY AWAY!
