18 Consecutive 4-Star Ratings from Charity Navigator

November 8, 2019

NEADS’ strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it another 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the 18th consecutive time that NEADS has earned this top distinction. In fact, with only three other organization that has received as many, NEADS is at the very top of the 10 Charities with the Most Consecutive 4-Star Ratings list.

“NEADS’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. And less than 1% of the charities evaluated have received at least 18 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that NEADS Inc. outperforms most other charities in America.”  

“It’s important our donors trust that we’re using their donations wisely to breed, raise, train and place World Class Service Dogs with people who need them,” said NEADS CEO Gerry DeRoche. “We believe our 18 consecutive 4-star Charity Navigator ratings demonstrate that NEADS is committed to good governance and financial accountability year after year.”
