Methodist Children’s Home on July 1, 2014, received a four-star rating by Charity Navigator – the highest ranking available from the nation’s largest charity evaluator, according to Tim Brown, president and CEO of MCH.
“Methodist Children’s Home has been offering hope to children, youth and families across Texas and New Mexico since 1890,” Brown said. “Any success is based upon a steadfast commitment to service to which we are called as well as accountability to those we serve and to those who make it possible through their generosity.
“We are grateful to receive this outstanding rating from Charity Navigator because we take seriously the relationship we have with our faithful supporters and the trust they place in us as we go about our ministry,” Brown said. “This is a tremendous affirmation of our entire organization.”
According to Charity Navigator, approximately 25 percent of the charities evaluated receive a four-star rating, indicating MCH outperforms most other charities in the United States. The rating is based upon governance, sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency, according to Charity Navigator’s leadership.
“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 Ken Berger, president and CEO of Charity Navigator. “In this competitive philanthropic marketplace, Charity Navigator highlights the fine work of efficient, ethical and open charities. Our goal in all of this is to provide donors with essential information needed to give them greater confidence in the charitable choices they make.”
