National military and veteran charity, Soldiers' Angels, earns four-star rating from Charity Navigator for the first time in the thirteen year history of the organization.

National nonprofit, Soldiers’ Angels, has been providing support to American military service members and veterans for over 13 years. Founded in June of 2003 by the mother of two American soldiers, the organization began as a grassroots effort to send care packages to deployed troops in Iraq. Since then, the organization has blossomed into a multi-million dollar effort to provide support to: service members; wounded service members; caregivers of wounded service members; veterans of all eras; and the families of service members and veterans. This dynamic range of support is achieved through a network of hundreds of thousands of “Angel” volunteers who participate in a variety of unique programs and services.

In 2013, Soldiers’ Angels underwent a complete organizational restructuring, bringing aboard Amy Palmer as their new President and CEO. Palmer is a leader in the military nonprofit environment and has been hailed as an expert on military family matters and veteran support. Since the restructuring, Palmer has consistently led the organization in an upward direction after several years of declining revenue. Soldiers’ Angels is now the largest volunteer network of any charity of its kind in the country and maintains an efficiency rating of 97%, which is significantly above that of the average nonprofit organization.

On October 1, Soldiers’ Angels earned four stars, the highest rating you can achieve, from the nation’s largest and most-utilized charity evaluator, Charity Navigator. This is the first time in the thirteen year history of the organization that the four-star rating has been achieved on Charity Navigator.
