On December 1st Locks of Love was awarded a coveted 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for sound fiscal management and a proven commitment to accountability and transparency.
As recent hard economic times have forever shaped the nonprofit sector, there is an unprecedented demand from savvy donors for greater accountability, transparency, and quantifiable results from the charities they choose to support. In this competitive philanthropic marketplace, Charity Navigator highlights the fine work of efficient, ethical, and open charities. As America’s premier charity evaluator, Charity Navigator is the gold standard in providing donors with essential information needed to give them greater confidence in the charitable choices they make.
The highest possible rating by Charity Navigator illustrates our commitment to good governance and highlights how we pursue our mission in a fiscally responsible way. Only one-quarter of evaluated charities receive this distinction, indicating that we outperform many other charities in America.
Locks of Love is once again honored to display the Charity Navigator 4 Star Seal!
