We’re excited to announce that, for the fifth consecutive year, we have earned the coveted 4-star rating from Charity Navigator! This trusted organization evaluates and rates nonprofits. The top rating means a lot to us, as the oversight group grants four stars to nonprofit organizations “for demonstrating strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency.”
Only 15% of the charities evaluated by Charity Navigator have received at least five consecutive 4-star evaluations (they rate more than 1.5 million charities!) - making Starlight a part of an exclusive group.
“We are proud to have our work acknowledged once again with the 4-star rating by Charity Navigator,” said Adam Garone, CEO, Starlight Children’s Foundation. “When you serve children and families, trust is critical. We’re honored and thrilled to share that we have been given this independent stamp of approval with our community: our grassroots donors, corporate partners, and the children, families, and hundreds of hospitals across the country we have the honor of delivering happiness to every day.”
We take pride in being top-rated for accountability and transparency, and we invite you to take a moment to review our rating on Charity Navigator. You will see that we are committed to spending nearly 90% of funds on programs. Almost 99% of funds come from contributions, gifts, and grants -- that includes donations from supporters who make individual or group contributions or host fundraisers for us.
