Your dollars are well-invested with Feed My Starving Children. For the eighth straight year, we have received the highest 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, the nation’s toughest charity watchdog.
“Only 2% of charities we rate have received at least 8 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Feed My Starving Children outperforms most other charities in America,” said a letter from Ken Berger, Charity Navigator’s President & CEO in early February 2013. “This ‘exceptional’ designation…differentiates FMSC from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”
What accounts for this high grade for FMSC? Good governance and efficient management. See the Charity Navigator web page about FMSC, here.
Keep in mind that when Charity Navigator lists our efficiency ratio as 87.1%, they do not count volunteer time as a donation. FMSC does count volunteer time as a donation, because our auditors instruct us to do so, based on the vital importance of volunteers to our production model. Using this recommended practice, FMSC’s efficiency ratio is 92% (of total donations directly supporting our feeding program vs. administration and fundraising costs).
On the Top Ten List:
FMSC is also among “10 Highly Rated Charities Relying on Private Contributions”. Charity Navigator says, “These 10 excellent charities draw revenue solely from public support. They report no government funding or membership fees…As a result, more than 95% of their total revenue comes from private contributions, which makes the efficiency of their fundraising operations all the more impressive.”
Here are other reasons to trust and support FMSC:
- Of 600 million meals shipped, 99.96% have reached the hungry children it was meant for.
- Meals are just 22 cents each. Just $80 feeds a child for a year!
- Our three meal formulas are packed with soy protein, dried vegetables and 20 vitamins and minerals—everything needed for a malnourished child to recover.
No wonder FMSC is one of the fastest-growing charities in America. Make a world of difference!
