Way of Tarrant County’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have once again earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the fifth year in a row that UWTC has earned the top rating.
“Only 6% of the charities we evaluate have received at least five consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that United Way of Tarrant County outperforms most other charities in America,” said Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator. “This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets United Way of Tarrant County apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”
A 4-star rating is Charity Navigator’s highest possible rating and indicates that UWTC adheres to sector best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating,” said Thatcher.
Among other factors, Charity Navigator focuses on governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness. “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 United Way of Tarrant County,” said Thatcher.
