Oregon Humane Society Gets Top Charity Ranking
The nation’s top charity watchdog has awarded OHS its highest possible ranking for the sixth consecutive year, an honor accorded to only 3% of the nation’s nonprofits.
Charity Navigator’s coveted 4-Star rating is given to nonprofits that demonstrate the highest level of fiscal management and a commitment to accountability and transparency.
“This ‘exceptional’ designation from Charity Navigator differentiates OHS from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust,” said Ken Berger, President of Charity Navigator, the nation’s leading independent charity watchdog.
Charity Navigator annually evaluates 6,000 of the nation’s largest charities, yet only 3% have maintained a 4-Star rating for six consecutive years.
“We know people can pick and choose the charities they want to support, which is why we work hard every year to earn the public’s trust,” said Sharon Harmon, OHS Executive Director. “We rely entirely on donations and hope animal lovers will support us during the holiday giving season.”
The top rating for OHS was based, in part, on Charity Navigator’s determination that 86% of every dollar spent by OHS goes to programs helping animals.
