A letter from Ken Berger, Charity Navigator’s president & CEO, was recently received informing Morris Habitat for Humanity that they had once again received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America's largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities.
In the letter from Charity Navigator, Mr. Berger noted that, “the nonprofit sector continues to grow at an unprecedented pace; savvy donors are demanding more accountability, transparency and quantifiable results from the charities they choose to support with their hard-earned dollars.”
Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that Morris Habitat adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes their mission in a fiscally responsible way. This Charity Navigator rating means that Morris Habitat for Humanity outperforms most other charities in America!
Morris Habitat’s Executive Director, Blair Bravo said that, “once again receiving this 4-star designation makes all our staff and volunteers very proud. We thank our supporters for trusting us with your donations, volunteer time, and good will. Our supporters’ trust and support mean so much to us and to the families we serve. We look forward to partnering with you throughout 2014 and years to come.”
This award winning Charity Navigator rating highlights the fine work of efficient, ethical and open charities. Their goal is to provide donors with essential information they need to make to choose the right charity.
