Charity Navigator, the leading charity evaluator in America, on February 1 again awarded the Ukrainian Catholic Education Foundation its coveted 4-star rating. According to Charity Navigator President and CEO Michael Thatcher, UCEF demonstrates “strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency.”

According to Thatcher’s letter, “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. Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that Ukrainian Catholic Education Foundation exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work. Only 32% of the charities we evaluate have received at least 2 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Ukrainian Catholic Education Foundation outperforms most other charities in America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets Ukrainian Catholic Education Foundation apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”

Forbes, Business Week, and Kiplinger’s Financial Magazine, among others, have profiled and celebrated Charity Navigator’s unique method of applying data-driven analysis to the charitable sector.
