Air Force Enlisted Village Earns 4-Star Charity Navigator Rating
Air Force Enlisted Village’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent evaluator of charities.
Since 2002, using objective analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. In 2011, Charity Navigator added 17 metrics, focused on governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness, to its ratings methodology. These Accountability & Transparency metrics, 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. On June 1, 2016, Charity Navigator upgraded their methodology for rating the financial health with CN 2.1. These enhancements further substantiates the financial health of four star charities.
“Air Force Enlisted Village’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” Charity Navigator President & CEO Michael Thatcher said. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. This adds Air Force Enlisted Village to a preeminent group of charities working to overcome our world’s most pressing challenges. 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 Air Force Enlisted Village.”
“We’re honored to receive a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator. It’s important our donors trust that we’re using their donations wisely to provide a home for our surviving spouses of retired enlisted U.S. Air Force members,” Air Force Enlisted Village President and CEO Brooke McLean said.
