Your dollars are well-invested with Feed My Starving Children. For the eleventh straight year, we have received the highest 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, the nation’s toughest charity watchdog.
Four stars is the highest mark awarded by the nation’s leading non-profit watchdog organization, indicating sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency. Charity Navigator scrutinizes audited financial results, board structure and accounting practices of more than 8,000 U.S. charities annually.
“Only 1% of the charities we rate have received at least 11 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Feed My Starving Children outperforms most other charities in America. This 'exceptional' designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Feed My Starving Children from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.” – Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator
What accounts for this high grade for FMSC? Good governance and efficient management. See the Charity Navigator web page about FMSC.
Keep in mind that when Charity Navigator lists our efficiency ratio as 88%, they do not count volunteer time as a donation. Per the recommendation of our auditors, FMSC counts volunteer time as a donation based on the vital importance of volunteers to our production model. Using this recommended practice, FMSC devotes more than 90 percent of total donations to feeding kids. Less than 10% goes to fundraising, administration, and overhead combined.
Here are a few reasons to trust and support FMSC:
