United Way of Greater Greensboro’s (UWGG) strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the first time that UWGG has earned this top distinction.
Charity Navigator evaluates charities based on financial health, accountability and transparency. Only the most fiscally responsible organizations receive a 4-star rating.
“United Way of Greater Greensboro’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator.
Thatcher adds, “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. Based on its 4-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support United Way.”
“It’s important our donors trust that we’re using their donations wisely and this rating demonstrates solid governance and financial accountability,” says Marci Peace, UWGG Vice President, Finance and Administration.
