Consistently Low Rated Charities

Last week, on this blog, we discussed the good --- the fact that most charities we rate earn high marks. This week, we’re going to talk a closer look at the bad and the ugly --- the 34 charities that consistently earn 0-star ratings. Remember, in our rating system 0-star charities are considered  "Exceptionally Poor."
Charities with Consecutive 0-Star Ratings
  • 16 have received two consecutive 0-star ratings
  • 7 have received three
  • 3 have received four
  • 3 have received six
  • 1 has received seven
  • 3 have received eight
  • 1 has received nine
Here are the organizations that have at least 6 consecutive 0-star ratings:

Number of Consecutive 0-Star Ratings
National Veterans Services Fund, Inc.
Firefighters Charitable Foundation
Children's Charity Fund, Inc.
The Committee for Missing Children
Wishing Well Foundation USA
Shiloh International Ministries
Texas Stampede
Disabled Police Officers Counseling Center

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 >>
