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.”
