Charity Navigator, America’s largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities, has awarded Stop Hunger Now the prestigious 4-star rating for good governance, sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency.
“We are honored to receive Charity Navigator’s highest rating,” said Rod Brooks, Stop Hunger Now President and CEO. “This designation reflects our sound financial management and our commitment to transparency and accountability as we pursue our mission to end hunger in our lifetime.”
Charity Navigator works to help charitable givers make intelligent giving decisions by providing information on more than five thousand charities nationwide and by evaluating their financial health. It calculates each charity’s score based upon several broad criteria, including how much is spent per dollar raised, what percentage of funds goes to programs vs. administrative and fundraising expenses, and the organization’s long-term financial health. It then assigns a rating from one to four stars, with four being the best rating.
“This high rating coupled with Stop Hunger Now’s increasing impact highlights our focus on good stewardship of charitable contributions and maintaining the public trust,” says Jeff Truitt, Chair of Stop Hunger Now’s Board of Directors. “Our supporters demand and deserve accountability, and I am very pleased that we are recognized for consistently providing it.”
