Convoy of Hope Receives Charity Navigator's 4-Star Rating
By Jocelyn Hu
Charity Navigator, America's largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities, has awarded Convoy of Hope, headquartered in Springfield, Missouri, the prestigious 4-star rating for its eleventh consecutive year.
"We are proud to announce Convoy of Hope has earned our eleventh consecutive 4-star rating," says Ken Berger, president & CEO of Charity Navigator. "This 'exceptional' designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Convoy of Hope from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust."
"We are honored to once again receive Charity Navigator's highest rating," says Hal Donaldson, CEO and co-founder of Convoy of Hope. "As a faith-based organization, we strive to be fiscally responsible and abide by the highest standards for our business practices."
According to Charity Navigator, receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that an 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. Less than 1 percent of the charities rated in America have received at least 11 consecutive 4-star evaluations.
Convoy of Hope, which the Assemblies of God partners with in many of its compassion efforts, is a faith-based, international, humanitarian-relief organization that works to bring help and hope to those who are impoverished, hungry and hurting.
