Charity Navigator 4-Star Rating

We want to share some exciting news with the Adopt-A-Family community. Adopt-A-Family is proud to report that we received our 12th consecutive 4-star rating from Charity Navigator.

With more than 1.5 million American charities, Charity Navigator aims to accentuate the work of efficient and transparent organizations. The intent of our work is to provide donors with essential information to give them greater confidence in both the charitable decisions that they make and the nonprofit sector. Forbes, Business Week, and Kiplinger’s Financial Magazine, among others, have boasted on Charity Navigator’s unique method of applying data-driven analysis to the charitable sector. By evaluating ten times more charities than their nearest competitor leads the way for Charity Navigator to be the leading charity evaluator in America.

“Only 1% of the charities we evaluate have received at least 12 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Adopt-A-Family outperforms most other charities in America.”

In the updated rating letter to the agency, Michael Thatcher (President and CEO of Charity Navigator) writes; “Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that Adopt-A-Family exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work. Only 1% of the charities we evaluate have received at least 12 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Adopt-A-Family outperforms most other charities in America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets Adopt-A-Family apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”

None of this would be possible without the support and generous investment of our donors, funders, and board of directors. We are extremely grateful for this recognition, but even more so, we are thankful for the privilege to serve the families in our community every single day.

Thank you again for all that you do to support Adopt-A-Family’s mission.
