MORRIS HABITAT FOR HUMANITY GETS COVETED 4-STAR CHARITY RATING
Randolph, NJ: Morris Habitat for Humanity is very pleased to announce that they have achieved the coveted 4-star rating, the highest one given by Charity Navigator, for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency.. Founded in 2001, Charity Navigator has become the nation's largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities. In their quest to help donors, their team of professional analysts examines tens of thousands of non-profit financial documents. They use this knowledge to develop an unbiased, objective, numbers-based rating system to assess over 5,000 of America's best-known and some lesser known, but worthy, charities.
Blair Bravo, Executive Director of Morris Habitat, was thrilled with the news. “We are so proud to have earned this highest rating and know that all our hard work has brought such an unexpected award.”
Charity Navigator feels that as the nonprofit sector continues to grow at an unprecedented pace, savvy donors are demanding more accountability, transparency and quantifiable results from the charities they choose to support with their hard-earned dollars. In this competitive philanthropic marketplace, Charity Navigator, highlights the fine work of efficient, ethical and open charities. Their goal in all of this is to provide donors with essential information needed to give them greater confidence in the charitable choices they make.
In his letter to Morris Habitat, Ken Berger, President & Chief Executive Officer of Charity Navigator said that, “receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that your organization adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way.” Berger continued by saying, “only a quarter of the charities we evaluate have received our highest rating, indicating that Morris Habitat for Humanity outperforms most other charities in America.” This "exceptional" designation from Charity Navigator truly differentiates Morris Habitat for Humanity from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.
