Bread for the World Institute Earns 4-Star Charity Rating for Seventh Consecutive Year

Washington, DC, November 6, 2013

For the seventh consecutive year, Bread for the World Institute has received Charity Navigator’s coveted 4-star rating for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency. This recognition positions the organization among the top 2 percent of all charities in the country.

“An organization is only as effective as its internal processes, which is why we strive to ensure that we operate ethically and responsibly to end hunger in the United States and around the world,” said Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World Institute. “It is truly an honor to receive such a designation from Charity Navigator.”

Charity Navigator is the country’s premier charity evaluator. The organization evaluates and recognizes the efforts of efficient, ethical and open charities to provide donors with essential information to boost their confidence in the charitable decisions they make.

Receiving 4 out of a possible 4 stars indicates that Bread for the World Institute adheres to best practices that minimize the occurrence of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way.

“Bread for the World Institute outperforms most other charities in America,” said Ken Berger, President and CEO of Charity Navigator. “This ‘exceptional’ designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Bread for the World Institute from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”
