IRT Earns 4-Star Rating from Charity Navigator—14 Years in a Row!

August 7, 2017

Once again, International Relief Teams has received four stars, the highest possible rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest charity evaluator, for sound fiscal management and a proven commitment to accountability and transparency.

According to Charity Navigator, less than 1% of charities they evaluate have ever received 14 consecutive 4-star ratings. This top honor indicates that International Relief Teams outperforms most other charities in America.

“This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets International Relief Teams apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness,” said Michael Thatcher, President  & CEO of Charity Navigator. “We are proud to announce International Relief Teams has earned our fourteenth consecutive 4-star rating. This is our highest possible rating and indicates that your organization adheres to sector best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way.”

Since 2002, using objective, data-driven analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. Charity Navigator's rating system examines two broad areas of a charity's performance; their Financial Health and their Accountability & Transparency. Their ratings show givers how efficiently a charity will use their support today, how well it has sustained its programs and services over time, and their level of commitment to good governance, best practices and openness with information.
