For the 6th year in a row, SAMMinistries has earned the coveted 4-Star rating from Charity Navigator, the premiere charity evaluator of nonprofit organizations in the United States. The 4-star rating, Charity Navigator’s highest, is given to nonprofits that practice exceptional fiscal responsibility and governance in fulfilling their mission. It is a testament to SAMMinistries’ sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency.
In his letter to SAMMinistries, Charity Navigator’s President and CEO Ken Berger noted, “Only 3% of the charities we rate have received at least 6 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that SAMMinistries outperforms most other charities in America. This 'exceptional' designation from Charity Navigator differentiates SAMMinistries from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.” Read the entire letter here.
SAMMinistries is happy to accept the accolades for what it means to the clients and community they serve. “It is always wonderful to be recognized for our good work. However, it is most important that we relay this information to our donors who support our programs and services. Our goal is to always serve our community first and apply best practices as stewards of our donor’s dollars,” reports Williams. Join SAMM today!
