In addition to His unfailing guidance, God has blessed Compassion with committed sponsors and donors, whose trust and confidence are highly valued and never taken for granted. It is through their consistent financial loyalty, that Compassion has been blessed to see generations of lives transformed.

Compassion International, a leading Christian child-development ministry, advanced to the 48th place in the 2007 NonProfit Times 100 (NPT) listing of nonprofits and charities.

Compassion was 54th in the NPT 100 a year ago.

"We are grateful to God for allowing us to experience such unprecedented growth," said Dr. Wess Stafford, president of Compassion International. "In addition to His unfailing guidance, God has blessed Compassion with committed sponsors and donors, whose trust and confidence are highly valued and never taken for granted. It is through their consistent financial loyalty, that Compassion has been blessed to see generations of lives transformed."

The NPT ranks the nonprofit groups according to their revenue in fiscal year (FY) 2006. To make the list, at least 10 percent of an organization's income must come from public support. Compassion, whose revenues increased by more than 18 percent in FY2006, receives its funding from public support.

In addition, more than 80 percent of Compassion's expenditures go to program expenses. The ministry also continues to be recognized for its outstanding financial integrity by publications and accountability groups such as The Chronicles of Philanthropy, the American Institute of Philanthropy and Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator, one of the nation's leading financial-accountability organizations, also gave Compassion its coveted four-star rating for the sixth consecutive year in 2007. In addition, Compassion is a founding member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability.

Compassion International is one of the world's largest Christian child development organizations, working with more than 65 denominations and more than 4,000 indigenous church partners in 24 developing countries in Africa, Asia, Central and South America and the Caribbean. Since 1952, Compassion has touched the lives of more than 1.6 million children and has been recognized for its financial integrity with top ratings and recommendations by the nation's leading not-for-profit "watchdog" organizations.
