Water Missions International has received Charity Navigator’s four-star rating for sound fiscal management, accountability and transparency for the seventh consecutive year.

“This ‘exceptional’ designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Water Missions International from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust,” Charity Navigator President and CEO Ken Burger said in a statement.

Charity Navigator evaluates the financial health, accountability and transparency of more 5,000 of the country’s largest charities and then provides data-based ratings. The public can use the ratings to select charities to support.

Only 2 percent of the charities rated by the organization have received its top rating for seven years in a row.

“It is a top priority at Water Missions International to be good stewards of donor resources through financial transparency and accountability,” Water Missions Founder and CEO George C. Greene III said. “To continue to be recognized for such fiscal and operational responsibility by Charity Navigator is a great honor.”
