Silver Spring, Md. (PRWEB) April 07, 2015
For the 12th consecutive year, the Pulmonary Hypertension Association has received a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, the premier evaluator of charities in the United States. This highest designation indicates that PHA adheres to good governance, sound fiscal management, commitment to accountability and transparency, and other best practices, consistently executing its mission in a fiscally responsible way.
The goal of Charity Navigator’s system is to provide donors with essential information needed to give them greater confidence in the charitable choices they make.
“PHA relies on donors to fund patient and caregiver support; early diagnosis awareness; medical education; specialty care services; and research to find ways to prevent and cure PH,” said Rino Aldrighetti, PHA President and CEO. “This commitment carries over into how we conduct business, leaving no doubt that we are a charity worth supporting.”
According to Charity Navigator, PHA’s 12-year, four-star rating puts the association among less than one percent of the charities it evaluates, indicating that PHA outperforms most other charities in America.
“As the nonprofit sector continues to grow at an unprecedented pace, savvy donors are demanding more accountability, transparency and quantifiable results from the charities they choose to support with their hard-earned dollars,” said John P. Dugan, Founder and Chairman of the Board of Charity Navigator
