CCF Awarded 12th Four-Star Charity Navigator Rating
Cambodian Children’s Fund receives top rating from America’s leading charity evaluator, Charity Navigator, for the 12th year running
Cambodian Children’s Fund (CCF) has earned the highest four-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity watchdog, for the 12th year running, receiving maximum score for its accountability and transparency.
Four stars are only given to organizations deemed exceptional, who exceed industry standards and out-perform most charities in the sector.
Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of a four-star rating.
Cambodian Children’s Fund’s exceptional four-star rating sets it apart from its peers
It means CCF’s strong financial health, commitment to accountability and transparency outshine many other charities, achieving the highest standards possible under Charity Navigator’s scrutiny.
“Cambodian Children’s Fund’s exceptional four-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” said Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator.
“Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. This adds Cambodian Children’s Fund to a preeminent group of charities working to overcome our world’s most pressing challenges.”
More than 8,000 charities are evaluated by Charity Navigator.
The organization assesses each charity’s financial health and looks at areas such as focusing governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness.
Accountability & Transparency, which account for 50 percent of a charity’s overall rating, reveal which charities operate in accordance with industry best practices and whether they are open with their donors and stakeholders.
CCF achieved a perfect 100 score in this area.
“Based on its 4-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support Cambodian Children’s Fund,” said Mr Thatcher.
The consistent 4-star Charity Navigator rating provides our supporters with transparency over how we handle their donations
Scott Neeson, CCF’s Founder and Executive Director, said the 12th four-star rating underlined CCF’s values and principles, and a commitment to supporters to uphold these.
“Ensuring our donors trust that we are using their donations wisely and offering a demonstrable return on investment, the consistent 4-star Charity Navigator rating provides our supporters with transparency over how we handle their donations, privacy of information and, with information on our board of directors and, the organisation's governance,” he said.
