Once in a while, it’s good to give ourselves a little pat on the back.
Charity Navigator, the country’s largest independent charity evaluator, recently notified Foodlink that it has achieved a score of 91.26, which translated to a 4-star rating. The annual ratings take into account the financial health, and accountability and transparency for a nonprofit organization.
This is the 9th year in a row that Foodlink has achieved a 4-star rating.
A letter from Michael Thatcher, president and CEO of Charity Navigator, provided some context for the honor.
“This is our highest possible rating and indicates that your organization adheres to sector best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way. Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that Foodlink exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work. Only 2% of charities we evaluate have received at least 9 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Foodlink outperforms most other charities in America.”
Kudos to the 80+ employees at Foodlink who made this possible! And thanks to all of our supporters that continue to believe in our organization and our mission.
