How Do 4-Star Charities Share Their Great Ratings?

4-star charities promote their excellent ratings in many different ways. Some common examples are:
  • Issuing a press releases to generate media coverage
  • Including it in a boilerplate
  • Highlighting the achievement in online and offline newsletters
  • Featuring it on their websites in an area where donations are accepted
  • Referencing it in grant proposals and annual reports
  • Displaying the 4-star logo in appeal letters, envelopes, banners and so on
Goodwill Southern California came up with another interesting way to share their good news (seen below). They created a physical card to insert in appeal letters and other mailings.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
