****We get 4 stars again****

4star125x125Together We Cope is honored to receive its sixth 4-Star rating in recent years from Charity Navigator, America’s largest and most utilized independent evaluator of charities. Once again, we got high marks for strong financial health, and commitment to accountability and transparency. At Together We Cope, fully 92 cents of every dollar received goes back into client services. Four stars is the highest rating given by Charity Navigator.

Michael Thatcher, president and CEO of Charity Navigator, said: “Together We Cope’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public. Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. Based on this rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support Together We Cope.”

 

GCFD Hunger Walk
