I have some very exciting news to tell you! Today, I received a letter from Mr. Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. (Charity Navigator is the nation's largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities.) I would like to share it with you.
Dear Gabriele Delmonaco:
On behalf of Charity Navigator, I wish to congratulate A Chance In Life on attaining the coveted 4-star rating for demonstrating strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency.
The nonprofit sector is advancing and expanding. As our organizations evolve, so do the desires and interests of our supporters. Astute donors are yearning for greater accountability, transparency, and for concrete results from us. 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.
Based on the most recent information available, we have issued a new rating for your organization. We are proud to announce that your organization has earned a 4-star rating. This is our highest possible rating and indicates that your organization adheres to sector best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way. Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that A Chance In Life exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work.
This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets A Chance In Life apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness. Approximately only a quarter of rated charities have achieved this distinction! [....]
We wish you continued success in your charitable endeavors.
President & CEO of Charity Navigator
You, our friends and donors, have supported the work of A Chance In Life for at-risk children so loyally and generously for many years. Today you have one more reason to be proud of being a part of our family. Congratulations on this milestone achievement! It is now written in the (four) stars that our organization is one of the very best in our area of work.
As our founder used to say, “we have no right to stop until there are no children suffering in the world.” Together, we can work to save even more children.
Insieme tutto è possibile … Together, anything is possible.
