4-Star Charity for 7th Consecutive Year

The Caring Place’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator.  This is the seventh consecutive year that The Caring Place has earned this top distinction. 

Since 2002, Charity Navigator has awarded the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating.  With more than 1.5 million American charities, Charity Navigator aims to accentuate the work of efficient and transparent organizations. The intent of their work is to provide donors with essential information to give them greater confidence in both the charitable decisions that they make and the nonprofit sector.

Charity Navigator’s President & CEO, Michael Thatcher announced to The Caring Place, “We are proud to announce The Caring Place has earned our seventh consecutive 4-star rating. This is our highest possible rating and indicates that your organization adheres to sector best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way.  Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that The Caring Place exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work. Only 8% of the charities we evaluate have received at least 7 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that The Caring Place outperforms most other charities in America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets The Caring Place apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”

“It’s important our donors trust that we’re using their donations wisely to accomplish our mission to provide for the basic human needs of all people in our community in a welcoming, respectful and caring way,” said The Caring Place Executive Director Ginna O’Connor.  “Our 4-star Charity Navigator rating demonstrates to our supporters our good governance and financial accountability.”
