Feed More Earns 4-Star Charity Navigator Rating for 14th Consecutive Year
Feed More’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the fourteenth consecutive time that Feed More has earned this top distinction.
“Simply put – we couldn’t fulfill our mission, particularly during these times of increased food insecurity, without our compassionate, generous donors,” said Doug Pick, President and CEO at Feed More. “We work every day to earn and keep their trust. Our 4-star Charity Navigator rating during the last 14 years demonstrates our commitment to principled, good governance and conservative financial management.”
Since 2002, using objective analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. In 2011, Charity Navigator added 17 metrics focused on governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness, to its ratings methodology. These Accountability & Transparency metrics, which account for 50 percent of a charity’s overall rating, reveal which charities operate in accordance with industry best practices and whether they are open with their donors and stakeholders. On June 1, 2016, Charity Navigator upgraded our methodology for rating each charity’s financial health with CN 2.1. These enhancements further substantiate the financial health of our four star charities.
“Feed More’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. This adds Feed More to a preeminent group of charities working to overcome our world’s most pressing challenges. Based on its 4-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support Feed More.”
