The Washington Humane Society has received a coveted 4-star rating for sound fiscal management from Charity Navigator, America’s premier charity evaluator. The 4-star rating is a testament to WHS’s commitment to the welfare of all the animals in the Washington DC metro area.
“We are exceptionally proud to be recognized as outstanding stewards of the contributions that are entrusted to us. We rely extensively on the generous support of our donors to carry out our mission and we are thrilled that the most trusted evaluator of charities has declared that our donors should be fully confident in their choice to support us,” said WHS President & CEO, Lisa LaFontaine.
Only a quarter of the charities evaluated by Charity Navigator have received the highest 4-star rating. The top rating indicates WHS is executing its mission in a fiscally responsible way, and is outperforming most other charities in America. This “exceptional” designation from Charity Navigator differentiates the Washington Humane Society from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.
According to Ken Berger, President and CEO of Charity Navigator, “As 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.”
Forbes, Business Week, and Kiplinger's Financial Magazine, among others, have profiled and celebrated Charity Navigator’s unique method of applying data-driven analysis to the charitable sector. According to their reports, they evaluate ten times more charities than their nearest competitor and currently attract more visitors to their website than all other charity rating groups combined, thus making them the leading charity evaluator in America. In other words you can trust their ratings.
