Charity Navigator, America's largest and most utilized independent charity rating agency, has awarded Operation Homefront their prestigious 4-star rating for the tenth year in a row. Operation Homefront is one of only 80 charities nationwide to receive ten or more consecutive 4-star ratings, placing it in the top one percent of all charities.
“I wish to congratulate Operation Homefront on attaining the coveted 4-star rating for demonstrating strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency,” said Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator. “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.”
Charity Navigator bases its rating analysis on a charity’s financial health, accountability and transparency and this exceptional designation sets Operation Homefront apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public. Charity Navigator has evaluated more than 8,000 charities and it is estimated that in 2016, Charity Navigator influenced approximately $10 billion in charitable gifts.
As 92 percent of Operation Homefront’s expenditures go directly to program delivery and services, the organization is consistently recognized for superior performance by leading independent charity oversight groups. Operation Homefront has received an “A” rating from CharityWatch, attained GuideStar's Platinum level and met all 20 Accountability Standards of the Better Business Bureau.
