OUR Center’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the fourth consecutive time that OUR Center has earned this top distinction.

Since 2002, using objective analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. Charity Navigator’s metrics focus on governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness.

“OUR Center’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public” according to 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 OUR Center 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 OUR Center.”

“It’s important our donors trust that we’re using their donations wisely to accomplish OUR Center’s mission” said Edwina Salazar, Executive Director. “Our 4-star Charity Navigator rating demonstrates to our supporters our good governance and financial accountability.”
