Feed The Hungry’s sound fiscal management practices and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned the organization a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator.

Using objective, data-driven analysis Charity Navigator awards only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. Dozens of financial accountability and transparency metrics, focused on governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness, are combined to determine a charity’s overall rating. These measurements reveal which charities have “best practices” in place to minimize the chance of unethical activities while providing substantive information to donors, stakeholders and the general public.

Feed The Hungry’s coveted 4-star rating puts it in a very select group of high-performing charities according to Tim Gamory, CIO of Charity Navigator. “Out of the thousands of nonprofits Charity Navigator evaluates, only one out of four earns 4 stars-a rating that demands rigor, responsibility and commit­ment to openness.”

We are very proud of this honor and accomplishment validating the good stewardship of the financial support received from our donors.
