Eagan, Minn. (Mar. 15, 2012) —
For the fifth consecutive year, CaringBridge, a Minnesota-based nonprofit, earned a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest evaluator of charities.
CaringBridge won the rating for its transparency and accountability, as well as its ability to efficiently manage its finances.
According to Charity Navigator, only four percent of the charities rated have received at least five consecutive four-star evaluations. The rating places CaringBridge near the top of the nation’s charities for consistently adhering to best practices and executing the mission of the organization – to amplify the love, hope and compassion in the world.
“Being among only 4 percent of charities to attain this highest standard year over year is a testament to CaringBridge’s dedication to having a big impact on people’s lives while also being committed to quality, effectiveness and stewardship,” said Sona Mehring, founder and CEO of CaringBridge.
Charity Navigator objectively rates charities in an effort to inform giving decisions of potential donors. A four-star rating indicates CaringBridge outperforms most other charities in America and consistently adheres to good governance.
In a letter announcing CaringBridge’s four-star rating, Charity Navigator president Ken Berger wrote, “This ‘exceptional’ designation from Charity Navigator differentiates CaringBridge from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”
The ongoing generosity of CaringBridge’s donors continues to help support the organization’s mission and service offerings. CaringBridge is for anyone facing any health condition: big or small, acute or long term, available for as long as needed.
