DCHS Given 4-Star Rating by Charity Navigator

SHARE:

Dane County Humane Society earns a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, assuring donors they can “give with confidence” to DCHS.

Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator, has been using objective analysis since 2001 to award only the most fiscally responsible organizations a four-star rating.

To determine the number of stars, Charity Navigator evaluates a nonprofit’s financial health, including stability, sustainability and efficiency. It also reviews the group’s accountability and transparency policies to ensure good governance and organizational integrity.

DCHS received an exceptional rating of 93 out of 100.

“Knowing how an organization utilizes its donations should be important to every donor. At DCHS, it’s important our supporters are confident that we are using their donations appropriately to help the thousands of animals coming through the doors of DCHS and our Wildlife Center each year,” says Lisa Bernard, DCHS Public Relations Coordinator.

Details about DCHS’s rating and other information about charitable giving are available free of charge at www.charitynavigator.org.
