Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator, recognized us once again on June 1, 2016, with their highest 4-star rating. After using an upgraded methodology for rating each charity’s financial health, they reaffirmed our 4-star rating.
This award means that you can rely on Morris Habitat to be fiscally responsible, efficient, ethical and open as we use your donations to build and maintain affordable housing.
On December 1, 2015, we received the following announcement from the President and CEO of Charity Navigator:
“I wish to congratulate Morris Habitat for Humanity on achieving our coveted 4-star rating for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency. Based on the most recent information available, we have issued a new rating for your organization. We are proud to announce Morris Habitat for Humanity has earned our fifth consecutive 4-star rating. Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that your organization adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way. Only 6% of the charities we rate have received at least 5 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Morris Habitat for Humanity outperforms most other charities in America. This “exceptional” designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Morris Habitat for Humanity from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”
