Charity Navigator, the largest independent charity evaluator has named The Rainbow Connection (TRC) as a top-rated charity once again for 2017. TRC’s fiscal management practices and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it the highest award, a 4-star rating for the sixth consecutive year, an honor only 6% of all charities rated achieve.
After Charity Navigator’s review, TRC earned 91.23 points out of 100 overall; 87.61 for financial management and 100 for accountability and transparency. As the non-profit marketplace becomes more competitive, there is an increased demand from donors for greater accountability and quantifiable results from the charities they choose to support.
With requests for wishes increasing more than 37% over the past two years and granting a record 172 wishes in 2017, the generous support donors provide TRC is invaluable. 86% of every dollar goes toward wish program expenses and in 2018, ensuring that these dollars continue to be allocated in a responsible way is of the utmost importance to TRC staff and Board of Directors.
