EAST ORANGE, NJ - For the fourth straight year, the Metropolitan YMCA of the Oranges has earned a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest charity evaluator.

John P. Dugan, Charity Navigator founder and board chairman, noted: “Only 8% of the charities we rate have received at least four consecutive four-star evaluations, indicating that Metro YMCA of the Oranges outperforms most other charities in America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator differentiates the YMCA from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”

The Metro YMCA is the largest association of YMCAs in New Jersey, serving more than 35,000 people at its six branches.

Receiving Charity Navigator’s highest distinction “reflects our accountability to all our constituencies, and our commitment to our mission of strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility," said Stuart Vorcheimer, chairman of the Metro YMCA’s board of directors.

Metro YMCA President and CEO Richard K. Gorab added, “This high rating coupled with the Y’s growing reputation as a leading cause-driven organization highlights our focus on good stewardship of charitable contributions and maintaining the public trust.”

Charity Navigator helps people decide which charities are worthy of their donations by evaluating the financial health of and accountability and transparency of more than 8,000 organizations. A nonprofit itself, Charity Navigator accepts no advertising or donations from the organizations it evaluates to ensure unbiased evaluations, and it doesn’t charge the public to access its data.
