For the ninth consecutive year, the United Way of Central Oklahoma has earned a 4-star rating – the highest possible – from Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest charity ranking service. Acknowledged for its commitment to donor accountability and transparency, the United Way continues to effectively execute its mission in a financially efficient manner.
“It’s always very gratifying to receive such a strong endorsement from Charity Navigator,” said Debby Hampton, United Way of Central Oklahoma president and CEO. “Donor stewardship and accountability continue to be a top priority at United Way, and this rating reinforces that we are doing a good job in these two important areas.”
Using publicly available financial information, Charity Navigator promotes intelligent giving by providing report cards for more than 8,000 worldwide charities. The nonprofit organization measures charities on financial health, accountability and transparency to predict how efficiently a charity will use financial support. It then assigns each charity a score from zero to four stars. Only about a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of a 4-star rating.
