4-Start Rating Five Years in a Row
JFS is Leading Charity in San Diego According to Charity Navigator
Jewish Family Service has received the coveted 4-star rating for the fifth year in a row for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency from Charity Navigator, America’s largest and most-used independent charity evaluator. Charity Navigator spotlights fine work of efficient, ethical, and open charities and provides donors with essential information needed to give them greater confidence in charitable choices that they make.
“Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that your organization adheres to good governance and other best practices…and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way,” said Ken Berger, President and Chief Executive Officer of Charity Navigator. “This ‘exceptional’ designation differentiates Jewish Family Service of San Diego from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”
Only 5% of the charities evaluated by Charity Navigator have received its highest 4-star rating for five consecutive years. Forbes, Fortune, and Kiplinger's Financial magazine, among others, have profiled and celebrated Charity Navigator’s unique method of applying data-driven analysis to the charitable sector.
“This accomplishment,” said Michael Hopkins, CEO of Jewish Family Service, “is a testament to our Board of Directors and staff who take great pride in fulfilling our mission and managing our resources so we can help as many clients as possible in our programs. It addresses perhaps the greatest donor concern—that your money is stewarded wisely and put to good use.”
