Children’s Hospital Foundation’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 time that Children’s Hospital Foundation has earned this top distinction.
“We are proud to announce Children's Hospital Foundation has earned our seventh consecutive 4-star rating,” said Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator. “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.”
Charity Navigator is America’s largest independent charity evaluator. The organization uses public financial information to promote what they call “intelligent giving.”
Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that Children's Hospital Foundation exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work. Only 7% of the charities we evaluate have received at least 7 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Children's Hospital Foundation outperforms most other charities in America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets Children's Hospital Foundation apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.
Forbes, Business Week, and Kiplinger's Financial Magazine, among others, have profiled and celebrated the unique method of applying data-driven analysis to the charitable sector. Charity Navigator evaluates ten times more charities than their nearest competitor and currently attract more visitors to their website than all other charity rating groups combined, thus making them the leading charity evaluator in America. Their data shows that users of their site donated more than they planned to before viewing their findings, and in fact, it is estimated that last year Charity Navigator influenced approximately $10 billion in charitable gifts.
