  Financial 89.38 three stars
  Accountability & Transparency 89.00 three stars
This rating was published 10/01/2018 and includes data from FY2017, the most recent 990 received at that time.

The Posse model works for both students and college campuses and is rooted in the belief that a small, diverse group of talented students-a Posse-carefully selected and trained, can serve as a catalyst for increased individual and community development. As the United States becomes an increasingly multicultural society, Posse believes that the leaders of this new century should reflect the country's rich demographic mix and that the key to a promising future for our nation rests on the ability of strong leaders from diverse backgrounds to develop consensus solutions to complex social problems. One of the primary aims of the Posse program is to train these leaders of tomorrow.
