DCHS Given 4-Star Rating by Charity Navigator

SHARE:

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

Charity Navigator, America’s largest 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, efficiency, and trustworthiness.

DCHS received a great rating of 100% that was based on the shelter's Accountability and Finance.

“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 our shelter 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.
