Waco, TEXAS — Methodist Children’s Home (MCH) on June 1, 2018, once again received a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator, according to Tim Brown, president/CEO of MCH, a Waco-based social service ministry.
“At Methodist Children’s Home we take seriously our mission to offer hope to children, youth and families through a nurturing, Christian community,” Brown said. “Receiving recognition from Charity Navigator for our accountability and transparency can be attributed to our steadfast commitment to excellence in all that we do for the sake of that life-changing mission, as well as accountability to those we serve and to those who believe in our ministry and support us through their generosity.”
According to leadership of Charity Navigator, only a third of rated charities have achieved the distinction of a four-star rating in consecutive years.
“Attaining a four-star rating sets Methodist Children’s Home apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness,” said Michael Thatcher, president and CEO of Charity Navigator. “This is our highest possible rating and indicates that your organization adheres to best practices within the nonprofit sector and executes its mission in a financially efficient way.”
Thatcher explained that donors today desire greater accountability, transparency and for concrete results from charity evaluators, and “the intent of our work is to provide donors with essential information to give them greater confidence in both the charitable decisions that they make and the nonprofit sector.”
“We are grateful to receive this outstanding rating because we take seriously the relationship with our faithful supporters and the trust they place in us as we go about our ministry,” Brown said. “This is a tremendous affirmation of our entire organization.”
