Children’s Hunger Fund earned the top 4 star rating by Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. The rating is based upon sound fiscal management practices, commitment to accountability and transparency. CHF has been recognized by Forbes.com, MinistryWatch.com, and The Chronicle of Philanthropy for program efficiency; 99% of CHF's total revenue has been used for programs helping kids.
“Children’s Hunger Fund’s coveted 4-star rating puts it in a very select group of high-performing charities,” according to Ken Berger, President and CEO, Charity Navigator. “Out of the thousands of nonprofits Charity Navigator evaluates, only one out of four earns 4 stars -- a rating that, now, with our new Accountability and Transparency metrics, demands even greater rigor, responsibility and commitment to openness. Children’s Hunger Fund’s supporters should feel much more confident that their hard-earned dollars are being used efficiently and responsibly when it acquires such a high rating.”
This announcement comes as Children’s Hunger Fund is preparing to launch an unprecedented number of initiatives in 2014, all with the goal of feeding hungry children here at home and around the world. One distinctive of CHF is that all the food is distributed by local churches to suffering families so that a relationship is established. To date, CHF has served over 20 million children.
“We believe that this rating will give added assurance to donors as they make their year-end giving decisions. Giving to CHF will result in thousands more children being fed and their basic needs being met,” says Dave Phillips, President and Founder of Children’s Hunger Fund. “We have amazing opportunities in 2014 that only need funding. These projects could deliver hope to so many children in need.”
