Fisher House Foundation Receives 15th Consecutive 4-Star Rating From Charity Navigator
Charity Navigator, the nation’s premier charity rating agency, praises Fisher House Foundation with another thumbs up after the non-profit received its 4-star rating for the 15thstraight year.
The coveted rating places Fisher House Foundation among the top non-profits in the nation. “There have been few things I have been associated with that bring me more pride and satisfaction than Fisher House Foundation,” said Ken Fisher, Chairman and CEO of Fisher House Foundation.“When a family member tells me that being near her husband saved his life and she could never have done that without a Fisher House, I am touched beyond words. I know I speak for everyone at the Foundation when I say we work hard to ensure we are good stewards of the resources entrusted to us by a generous public.”
Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator writes in an open letter, “We are proud to announce Fisher House Foundation has earned our fifteenth consecutive 4-star rating. This is our highest possible rating and indicates that your organization adheres to best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way. Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that Fisher House Foundation exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work.”
Less than one percent of the charities rated by Charity Navigator have received at least 15 consecutive 4-star evaluations.
Just as important as the ratings, however, are the military and veterans’ families the Foundation touches, thanks to the support of a generous American public. “The thought of going through this devastating time without the stay at the Fisher House is unbearable,” said Mary Moore, wife of an Army veteran. “I am 99 percent calmer because I could stay at Fisher House, and that is the greatest gift I could give my husband at this time in our lives.”
Thanks to the support Fisher House Foundation receives, we recently opened our 80thhome. These “comfort homes” are built on the grounds of military and VA medical centers. Upon completion, the homes are donated to VA or DoD who manage them in perpetuity, allowing the Foundation to continue building more Fisher Houses.
