Stand for Children Leadership Center has earned the prestigious 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America's largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities. Based on strength in two areas, Financial Health and Accountability & Transparency, Stand for Children Leadership Center has now distinguished itself among the top 30% of charities.
“We are honored to receive the highest rating Charity Navigator awards,” said Jonah Edelman, CEO and Co-Founder.
Charity Navigator works to help charitable givers make intelligent giving decisions by providing information on more than five thousand charities nationwide and by evaluating their financial health. It calculates each charity’s score based upon several broad criteria, including how much is spent per dollar raised, what percentage of funds goes to programs vs. administrative and fund-raising expenses, and the organization’s long-term financial health. It then assigns a rating from one to four, with four being the best rating.
Chief Development Officer Susie Crafton said, “Our 4-star rating demonstrates to supporters that they can rest assured we will use their contributions toward our work to improve education for millions of students across the nation.”
