Fiscal responsibility Charity Navigator announced it September 1.

We wrote a press release about it on September 25.

And I JUST got the point . . . because I got a little perspective.

Compassion received its seventh consecutive four-star rating from Charity Navigator.

I had heard that, and I knew we were one of only 45 charities to have done that. But what I found interesting is:

  • 387 charities have received two consecutive 4-star ratings
  • 199 did the triple
  • 168 are rollin’ on four
  • 59 pulled down five
  • and 67 earned six in a row

That’s cool y’all. But repeatin’ the feat seven times is severely suh-WEET!

Check out what kind of company we keep.

    That is very awesome!

    Very helpful info when people ask, “But is Compassion is actually doing what they say they are doing with MY money.”

    Bravo! Way to go! That’s one of the major reasons I love to support Compassion. You introduce more kids to Jesus because you view every dollar as something entrusted by God. You release more families from poverty because you take seriously the parable of the talents. Anyway, I like you Compassion, and I’m proud to call myself a partner in your ministry to the poor and oppressed.

    1 in 45 is awesome, especially since there are well over one and a half MILLION not-for-profits in the good ol USA.

    Compassion is in the top 45 of over 1,500,000. That is incredible–no, that IS GOD!

    Before sponsoring with Compassion I looked at several different organizations. Compassion’s high rating on Charity Navigator was one of the factors that led me to choose Compassion. Another important factor is Compassion’s committment to teaching children about the love of God!

    Thank you so much for all you do to help “the least of these.”

    BTW-did you think we weren’t going to notice the lack of a half sentence this weekend? haha

    I always look forward to that on the weekends. There are always some great responses!

    I feel very blessed to be apart of Compassion Ministries. I can see and feel the results of my humble and small contribution. A friend of mine ask me a year ago, and said, “don’t you know that there are hungry Americans, why don’t you support them”? I responded by saying, I try to help when I can, but where in America can you make this great impact for life and death with the small amount that I am able to give? God uses my small amount to make a huge difference in the live of not only one child, but their family and community. Thank you Compassion for taking my small contribution, being a good steward with the money, and stretching it so far to reach so many!
