On the eve of completing yet another clean fiscal audit this month, for fiscal year 2017 — I was even more honored to see this detailed independent report from Charity Navigator (basically the gold standard rating agency for nonprofit organizations in the U.S.), which distinguishes Operation HOPE as one of the top quartile of all nonprofit organizations in the country.
Most notably from the report published last month, August, 2018, was:
- The Overall Score & Rating of 93.96 out of 100.
- The Financial Rating of 91.47 out of 100.
- The Accountability & Transparency Rating of 100% out of a possible 100%.
It is also impressive that this independent audit of our work and organization found that 81.4% of every dollar raised went directly into our Program work for people, on the ground, and a mere 12.7% was attributed to Administration & Overhead.
