GFW Receives Four-Star Rating From Charity Navigator For the Fourth Consecutive Year

SAN FRANCISCO – Charity Navigator, the largest independent evaluator of the financial health of philanthropic organizations, has awarded the highest 4-star rating to the Global Fund for Women for the fourth consecutive year.

This rating highlights the ability of the Global Fund for Women to efficiently allocate resources while growing financially. Four consecutive exceptional evaluations pay tribute to the Global Fund's consistently responsible management, as well as its dedication to maximizing resources towards its mission.
"Less than 12% of the charities we've rated have received at least two consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that the Global Fund for Women outperforms most charities in America in its efforts to operate in the most fiscally responsible way possible. This 'exceptional' rating from Charity Navigator differentiates the Global Fund for Women from its peers and proves that it's worthy of the public's trust," states Trent Stamp, Executive Director of Charity Navigator.

Of the distinction, Kavita Ramdas, President and CEO for the Global Fund for Women, said: "We are deeply honored by this continued recognition of our efficiency in fiscal management. This high rating illustrates the Global Fund's commitment to wisely invest money in women's rights groups worldwide."
