RANDOLPH,NJ- So many people worry about giving to a charity.  They are concerned about where their money is going and how much money is spent on advertising or administrative costs.  They want to be sure that their donation is used wisely.  Charity Navigator is one of the most reliable sources for evaluating charities and once again, for the 6th year in a row they have given Morris Habitat for Humanity their highest score.

A letter from Michael Thatcher, Charity Navigator’s president & CEO, announced the honor. Mr. Thatcher noted that, “the nonprofit sector continues to grow at an unprecedented pace; astute donors are yearning for more accountability, transparency and quantifiable results from the charities they choose to support with their hard-earned dollars.”  Berger went on to note that, “Only 5% of the charities we evaluate have received at least 6 consecutive 4-star evaluations, Morris Habitat for Humanity outperforms most other charities in America.” 

Receiving this high rating indicates tangibly confirms that Morris Habitat adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes their mission in a fiscally responsible way.

Morris Habitat’s Executive Director, Blair Bravo said that, “With Charity Navigator’s designation we can assure those donating time, money or in-kind services that their support is well founded. This rating makes all our staff and volunteers very proud.   Our backers trust and support means so much to us and to the families we serve. We look forward to a fulfilling 2017 and to continue expanding our goals for years to come.”

This award winning Charity Navigator highest rating highlights the fine work of efficient, ethical and open charities. Their goal is to provide donors with essential information they need to make to choose the right charity.
