Bread for the World Institute Earns 4-Star Rating from Charity Navigator

Washington, D.C. – Bread for the World Institute is pleased to announce that its strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator.

“It’s important our donors trust that we’re using their donations wisely to accomplish Bread’s mission,” said Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World Institute. “Our 4-star Charity Navigator rating demonstrates to our supporters our good governance and financial accountability.”

Since 2002, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. Bread for the World Institute has consistently received Charity Navigator’s top awards in the last seven years.

“Bread for the World Institute’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” said Michael Thatcher, president & CEO of Charity Navigator. “Based on its 4-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support Bread for the World Institute.”
