10 Top-Notch Charities
At Charity Navigator we believe that high-performing charities excel in three areas: (1) financial, (2) accountability & transparency and (3) results. We expanded our rating system in September 2011 from one that solely looked at financial indicators to one that also includes metrics of accountability & transparency. These ten charities not only earn our highest 4-star rating for their Financial Health, but they also earn 4-stars in Accountability & Transparency. This tells us that these 10 charities adhere to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and that they execute their missions in a fiscally responsible way.
