BURBANK, CA (April 17, 2006) – For the third consecutive year, Islamic Relief USA has been awarded with a 4-star rating by Charity Navigator, the largest charity evaluator in the United States. Charity Navigator’s stated goal is “to advance a more efficient and responsive philanthropic marketplace by evaluating the financial health of 3,000 of America’s largest charities.”
In a letter to Islamic Relief, Charity Navigator’s Executive Director, Trent Stamp, commended the accomplishment:
“This month we have calculated a new rating for your organization based on the most current financial information available. We are happy to announce that Islamic Relief has earned its third consecutive 4-star rating for its ability to efficiently allocate and grow its finances. Less than 12% of the charities we’ve rated have received at least two consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Islamic Relief outperforms most charities in America in its efforts to operate in the most fiscally way possible. This ‘exceptional’ rating from Charity Navigator differentiates Islamic Relief from its peers and proves that it’s worthy of the public’s trust.”
Throughout our history, we have always worked hard to build the trust of our donors. This recent award confirms Islamic Relief USA’s commitment to managing a professional organization that fulfills the intentions of our donors and the needs of the beneficiaries.
Islamic Relief USA has been growing steadily over the last few years. We thank God Almighty first, as well as all our donors, supporters and volunteers across the country for helping us achieve the goals that we all share – alleviating the poverty and suffering of the world’s poorest people, as well as providing lasting, sustainable solutions to help people help themselves.
