THE ROTARY FOUNDATION again receives the highest recognition from the Charity Navigator Organisation
On behalf of Charity Navigator, I wish to congratulate The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International on achieving our coveted 4-star rating for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency.
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. In this competitive philanthropic marketplace, Charity Navigator, America's premier charity evaluator, highlights the fine work of efficient, ethical and open charities. Our goal in all of this is to provide donors with essential information needed to give them greater confidence in the charitable choices they make.
Based on the most recent information available, we have issued a new rating for your organization. We are proud to announce The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International has earned our seventh consecutive 4-star rating. Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that your organization adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way.
Only 2% of the charities we rate have received at least 7 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International outperforms most other charities in America. This “exceptional” designation from Charity Navigator differentiates The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.
