Sept. 11, 2012 - Family Centers Named Among Nation’s Best Nonprofits by Charity Navigator
For the sixth consecutive year, Charity Navigator, the largest independent evaluator of U.S. charities, awarded Family Centers with its 4-star rating for outstanding fiscal management.
The 4-star designation is Charity Navigator’s highest honor, and indicates that Family Centers outperforms the majority of nonprofits in America with respect to fiscal responsibility. Only 17 percent of nonprofits surveyed have earned consecutive 4-star evaluations. This consistent recognition from Charity Navigator assures Family Centers’ donors that their philanthropic efforts support one of the most effective and efficient charitable organizations in the nation.
“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,” said Ken Berger, Charity Navigator President & CEO. “In this competitive philanthropic marketplace, Charity Navigator,
America's premier charity evaluator, highlights the fine work of efficient charities such as Family Centers, and provides donors with essential information needed to give them greater confidence in the charitable choices they make.”
