Fistula Foundation Recognized in Top 1%
For the eighth consecutive year in a row, Fistula Foundation is proud to receive a four star rating – the highest available – from Charity Navigator, the United States’ premiere charity evaluator. This ranking puts Fistula Foundation in thetop 1% of all charities rated.
Last year Charity Navigator received almost five million visits by donors who rely on the site’s unbiased analysis of more than 6,000 American charities.
In a letter to Fistula Foundation, Ken Berger, President and CEO of Charity Navigator, wrote, “Fistula Foundation outperforms most other charities in America. This ‘exceptional’ designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Fistula Foundation from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”
Charity Navigator is one of the largest and most influential charity raters in the United States. Their mission is to guide intelligent giving by examining tens of thousands of non-profit financial documents and assessing their performance. Ratings are given based on the charity’s financial health and accountability or transparency.
“Fistula Foundation is only able to do the work we do because of the donations our supporters entrust to our care,” said Kate Grant, CEO of Fistula Foundation, “We’re thrilled to be able to demonstrate, once again, that we are responsibly using these funds to treat more women who suffer from obstetric fistula.”
