The Rotary Foundation Earns Eighth Straight 4-Star Rating

The Rotary Foundation earned a 4-start rating from Charity Navigator, the largest and most prestigious independent evaluator of nonprofits in the United States.   This year's top distinction is the Foundation's eighth in a row, which places the Foundation in the top 2 percent of U.S.-based charities.  In a letter to the Foundation, Charity Navigator President and CEO Michael Thatcher wrote, "Receiving four out of a possible four starts indicates that your organization adheres to good governance and other practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way.  This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator differentiates The Rotary Foundation from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust," Thatcher said.
