Once again, we're excited to share the news: we received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator. This is the highest rating awarded by the organization, whose mission is "to advance a more efficient and responsive philanthropic marketplace."
A 4-star rating is assessed by merging the scores of two fields: financial performance and accountability & transparency performance. Within each of these fields, Canvasback is graded on a number of items, ranging from the amount of funds spent on actual program expenses to the laws and structures between us and the public, or us and our board of directors.
We're excited to share that we have an overall score of 95.47 out of 100—not bad, right?
This isn't the only way to measure our impact—the 5,000 people reached through specialty teams and health education, or the $3.8 million worth of care provided this year, are more important metrics.
As we close on our 35th year of service, we're happy for yet another win. Thanks for trusting us to work ethically with the resources we're given and in the communities we serve.
