Charity Navigator, the highly respected charity evaluator, has awarded UMCOR its top charity rating—four stars—for UMCOR’s excellent performance in the two broad categories assessed: financial health and accountability and transparency.
“We appreciate this rating because we know donors are looking for unbiased information to help them evaluate the integrity of the organizations they contribute to,” said Roland Fernandes, chief operating officer and general treasurer of the General Board of Global Ministries, of which UMCOR is a part.
Charity Navigator uses a team of professional analysts to evaluate the financial documents of U.S.-based nonprofit organizations. UMCOR is among more than 8,000 such organizations Charity Navigator reviews each year.
“Our ratings show givers how efficiently we believe a charity will use their support today, how well it has sustained its programs and services over time and their level of commitment to good governance, best practices and openness with information,” Charity Navigator explains on its website.
“UMCOR is proud to be recognized by Charity Navigator as an organization that has earned—and continually seeks to earn—the trust of our supporters and partners,” Fernandes said.
