LIVINGSTON, NJ — For the sixth-consecutive year, the nation’s largest charity evaluator awarded the Metropolitan YMCA of the Oranges its top rating on Wednesday in recognition of the organization’s sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency.

“Only 5 percent of the charities we evaluate have received at least six consecutive four-star evaluations, indicating that Metro YMCAs of the Oranges outperforms most other charities in America,’’ said Charity Navigator President and CEO Michael Thatcher. “This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets Metro YMCA of the Oranges apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”
