The Jewish Federation of Delaware earned a Four-Star Rating from Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the third consecutive time that the Federation has earned this top distinction.
Charity Navigator rates charities by evaluating two broad areas of performance; Financial Health and Accountability & Transparency. These ratings show donors how efficiently a charity uses their support today, how well it has sustained its programs and services over time and their level of commitment to being accountable and transparent. Charity Navigator provides these ratings so that donors can make intelligent giving decisions, and so that the philanthropic community can be more effectively monitored.
“Jewish Federation of Delaware’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating and only 18% of the charities we evaluate have received at least 3 consecutive 4-star evaluations.”
“Receiving Charity Navigator’s Four-Star rating for the third consecutive year recognizes our ongoing financial health as well as our commitment to being a trusted and transparent organization.” stated Seth J. Katzen, CEO of the Jewish Federation of Delaware. “Being one of only ten Delaware charities to receive this honor is a true testament to our dedicated leadership and staff.
