Barnabas Center is celebrating another milestone this month. With a transparency and accountability rating of 100%, Barnabas Center has been ranked a 4 star charity, the highest possible rating, for the 11th year in a row by Charity Navigator. Only one percent of rated charities nationwide achieve this status, indicating that Barnabas Center outperforms most other charities in America.
Founded in 2001, Charity Navigator is the nation’s largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities. In a quest to help donors, their team of professional analysts examines tens of thousands of non-profit financial documents. They use this this knowledge to develop an unbiased, objective, numbers-based rating system to assess over 8,300 of America’s best-known and some lesser known, but worthy, charities.
“We are honored that we have earned the highest rating for nonprofit management by Charity Navigator this year. We work very hard at being good stewards of the monetary and other resources that are donated to us and strive to be a transparent and well-managed organization,” said Wanda Lanier, President & CEO of Barnabas Center.
