Methodist Children’s Home (MCH) once again received a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, according to Trey Oakley, president/CEO of MCH. The four-star rating is the highest designation given by the nation’s largest charity evaluator to organizations demonstrating strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency.
“We are committed at Methodist Children’s Home to providing innovative, top-tier service in all that we do,” Oakley said. “This commitment extends through all our programs and services for children, youth and families across Texas and New Mexico, and in the way we honor the faithful benefactors who support our ministry. Receiving this recognition from Charity Navigator is an acknowledgment of our commitment and further communicates to the public that we hold ourselves to the highest standards of integrity.”
According to leadership of Charity Navigator, only 20 percent of evaluated charities have realized the distinction of at least four consecutive four-star ratings as MCH has achieved.
“Attaining a four-star rating indicates Methodist Children’s Home exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in this sector, indicating that MCH adheres to best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way,” said Michael Thatcher, president/CEO of Charity Navigator.
Thatcher explained that donors today desire greater accountability, transparency and 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 they make and the nonprofit sector.”
“Because of this designation, our faithful supporters can partner with us in confidence and trust,” Oakley said. “We are grateful for this affirmation of our ministry.”
