By: Guadalupe Center
Charity Navigator evaluates nonprofit organizations on their financial strength, accountability and transparency. Guadalupe Center's 4-star rating means it adheres to strict accounting procedures while disclosing pertinent financial and operational information to the federal government.
Charity Navigator aims to guide intelligent giving by evaluating the financial health, accountability and transparency of thousands of nonprofits each year.
"A 4-star rating is reserved for only the top charitable organizations, so for Guadalupe Center to receive the top rating for four consecutive years certainly is a tremendous achievement,"
Guadalupe Center, which received a perfect evaluation score of 100 for accountability and transparency, is one of just 11 education-focused nonprofits in Florida to earn 4-star ratings in four consecutive years.
"Only 21% of the charities we evaluate have received at least four consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Guadalupe Center outperforms most other charities in America," said Charity Navigator President and CEO Michael Thatcher. "This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets Guadalupe Center apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness."
Guadalupe Center's mission is to break the cycle of poverty through education for the children of Immokalee.
