Charleston-based Water Missions International recently received Charity Navigator’s coveted four-star rating for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency for the seventh year in a row. “Only two percent of the charities we rate have received at least seven consecutive four-star evaluations, indicating that Water Missions International outperforms most other charities in America,” says Charity Navigator president and CEO Ken Burger. “This ‘exceptional’ designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Water Missions International from its peers.” Charity Navigator helps guide intelligent giving by providing information on more five thousand charities and by evaluating the financial health of those organizations. Forbes, Business Week and Kiplinger’s Financial Magazine have profiled and celebrated Charity Navigator’s unique method of applying data-driven analysis to the charitable sector.
Water Missions International currently has full-time staff in nine countries around the world – Honduras, Haiti, Mexico, Belize, Peru, Uganda, Kenya, Malawi and Indonesia. In addition to providing sustainable access to safe water to people in these countries and 49 others, Water Missions International also stands ready to respond in the wake of a disaster. With the evaluation and high rating by an organization like Charity Navigator, Water Missions International is given the opportunity to help more people with access to life-saving water.
