As a Catholic organization, we aim to be humble in our work — you won’t see CNEWA’s name stenciled on massive crates of relief supplies, or on warehouses or schools.
Sometimes, though, it’s nice to be recognized for our efforts — as we were today by Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. We received their coveted rating of 4 stars!
“CNEWA’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. This adds CNEWA to a preeminent group of charities working to overcome our world’s most pressing challenges.”
To our wonderful donors: thank you for your ongoing and generous support. This news demonstrates our commitment to sound fiscal management, accountability and transparency. Your trust is crucial to us, and we never take it for granted.
