The Special Operations Warrior Foundation has earned its eighth consecutive four-star rating from Charity Navigator, the nation’s leading independent charity evaluator. The four-star rating is the highest rating given by Charity Navigator, awarded for sound fiscal management practices as well as commitment to accountability and transparency.
“Only 1% of the charities we rate have received at least 8 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Special Operations Warrior Foundation outperforms most other charities in America, said Ken Berger, Charity Navigator President and CEO. “This ‘exceptional’ designation differentiates the Special Operations Warrior Foundation from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.
Charity Navigator provides information on more than 6,000 charities throughout the nation, based on the financial state of each, and the organization uses a numbers-based rating system to assess the charities based on their financial documentation.
“We are honored to receive Charity Navigator’s highest rating,” said President and CEO, Joe Maguire. “We are fortunate to have loyal supporters who believe in our cause of taking care of the families of fallen and wounded Special Operations Forces. Our staff and Board of Directors work hard to be good stewards with their donations. This four-star rating reflects our commitment to the mission and that we have earned the trust of our supporters.”
For more than 33 years, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation has supported the families of fallen and wounded Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special operations personnel. The SOWF has two primary programs: College scholarships for the children of fallen warriors; and immediate financial grants to the families of severely wounded special operators.
