Community Foundation Receives 4-Star Rating

August 4, 2021

The Wayne County Community Foundation recently earned the coveted four-star rating from Charity Navigator, the world’s largest guide for philanthropic decision making, which evaluates a sizable portion of the more than 1.5 million charities in the U.S. The four-star rating is the highest possible and is reserved for organizations that exceed industry standards, adhere to sector best practices, and execute their mission in a financially efficient way.

“Receiving the four-star rating from Charity Navigator is an honor,” stated Sara Patton, Executive Director of the Community Foundation. “It attests to our financial effectiveness, and shows that we are a trustworthy steward of the resources entrusted to us.”

The core components of Charity Navigator ratings – financial health, accountability and transparency – are measured annually. Charity Navigator accepts no funding from the organizations it evaluates, ensuring unbiased evaluations, nor does Charity navigator charge the public for this trusted data.
