A Four-Star Decade: Charity Navigator Rates Mission Arlington.
For the 10th year in a row, Mission Arlington® receives Charity Navigator’s 4-STAR Designation
Transparency and accountability has always been an important part of the work at Mission Arlington®. For this reason, we voluntarily partner with various “charity watchdogs” who provide independent reports to you about how we are doing with the resources you provide. We keep these reports public, available for your review anytime.
For the tenth year in a row, Charity Navigator, the largest, and one of the most respected, charity-evaluators in America honored Mission Arlington® with its 4-STAR rating. This is the highest rating an organization can receive in their system. According to Michael Thatcher, their President and CEO, in a letter to Tillie Burgin February 1st, ” only 1% of the charities we rate have received at least 10 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that
Mission Arlington® / Mission Metroplex® outperforms most other charities in America.
In his February 1st, 2016 letter, Thatcher says that Mission Arlington® consistently demonstrates “sound fiscal management practices and a commitment to accountability and transparency.” The 4-STAR rating is a designation which communicates to donors two important truths: Mission Arlington® 1) operates using “best practices” which minimize the chance of unethical activities,” and 2) “executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way.”
Since this organization turned 29 last August and reaches our 30th birthday this coming August, we like to say that we are “in our 30th year.” Our Director, Tillie Burgin, has been here since the beginning as has been much of this beautiful team of people who serve here day after day. We want you to know how grateful we are for your trust and for your support.
We consider your faithful gifts of time, money, and spiritual support as one of our most treasured blessings. Thank you!
