SAN DIEGO-–For the fifth consecutive year, Jewish Family Service has earned the highest rating for sound fiscal management, the coveted 4-star designation from Charity Navigator, America’s premier charity evaluator. Charity Navigator highlights the fine work of efficient charities and provides donors with essential information needed to give them greater confidence in the charitable choices they make.
According to Ken Berger, President and CEO of Charity Navigator, Jewish Family Service earned its 4-star rating through its ability to efficiently manage and grow its finances.
“Only 5% of the charities we rate have received at least five consecutive 4-star evaluations,” said Berger. “This outstanding accomplishment means that Jewish Family Service of San Diego outperforms most other charities in America. This ‘exceptional’ designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Jewish Family Service of San Diego from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”
“This accomplishment,” said Michael Hopkins, CEO of Jewish Family Service, “is a testament to our Board of Directors and staff who take great pride in fulfilling our mission and managing our resources so we can help as many clients as possible in our programs. It addresses perhaps the greatest donor concern—that your money is stewarded wisely and put to good use. As Charity Navigator puts it, ‘this exceptional designation differentiates Jewish Family Service of San Diego from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.’ “
