By Marissa Gunther, Director of Growth Strategies, Shared Hope International
For the 6th consecutive year, Shared Hope International has achieved the coveted four-star rating from Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest independent evaluator of charities. Following a thoroughly comprehensive review, Shared Hope earned 92.73 points out of 100 overall for the Fiscal Year 2018.
So what exactly does that mean?
Here is what Charity Navigator President and CEO Michael Thatcher had to say about our score in a letter dated August 1, 2019:
“Only 9% of the charities we evaluate have received at least 6 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Shared Hope international exceeds industry standards and outperforms most other charities in America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets Shared Hope apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”
Aiming to achieve a four-star rating is our commitment to our donors, supporters and the vulnerable adults, girls, and boys we serve. We specifically strive for:
- Sound fiscal management
- Commitment to accountability and transparency
Our mission is preventing the conditions that foster sex trafficking, restoring and empowering survivors, and bringing justice to vulnerable adults and children. We cannot accomplish our mission without the trust of our donors, collaborators, legislators and the public.
And so, we are throwing all the confetti and popping all the corks celebrating this achievement today. We hope that our continuous efforts to be financially healthy, transparent and accountable prove to be worthy and deserving of your trust.
We celebrate YOU, too!
Thank you for trusting us with your donations, your volunteer time, and your belief in our mission. Your support means the world to us, and to the vulnerable adults, girls, and boys that we serve.
Because of you, we can continue providing hope – one life at a time. Thank you for being part of our mission to end child sex trafficking!
