 Catholic Charities of Los Angeles, Inc.’s sound fiscal management practices and commitment to accountability and transparency have, again, earned it a 4-star rating, for the third consecutive year, from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator.

Catholic Charities of Los Angeles Earns Coveted 4-Star Rating from Charity Navigator

Charity_Navigator_4Star125x125

Los Angeles, June 1, 2016 – Catholic Charities of Los Angeles, Inc.’s sound fiscal management practices and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the sixth time that Catholic Charities of Los Angeles has earned this top distinction.

Since 2002, using objective, data-driven analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. In 2011, Charity Navigator added 17 metrics, focused on governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness, to its ratings methodology. These “Accountability & Transparency” metrics, which accounts for 50 percent of a charity’s overall rating, reveal which charities have “best practices” that minimize the chance of unethical activities and whether they freely share basic information about their organization with their donors and other stakeholders.

“Catholic Charities of Los Angeles, Inc.’s coveted 4-star rating puts it in a very select group of high-performing charities,” according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. “Out of the thousands of nonprofits Charity Navigator evaluates, only one out of four earns 4 stars – a rating that demands rigor, responsibility and commitment to openness. Catholic Charities of Los Angeles’ supporters should feel much more confident that their hard-earned dollars are being used efficiently and responsibly when it acquires such a high rating.”

“It is important our donors trust that we’re using our funding wisely to accomplish Catholic Charities’ mission,” said Rev. Monsignor Gregory A. Cox, Executive Director. “Our 4-star Charity Navigator rating demonstrates to our supporters that we take our fiduciary and governance responsibilities very seriously.”

Catholic Charities of Los Angeles’ rating and other information about charitable giving are available free of charges on http://www.charitynavigator.org/.

Council on Accreditation (COA) Reaccredits Catholic Charities of Los Angeles, Inc.

council-on-accreditation-tr-150x148

The simple statement “we are COA-accredited” tells you a great deal about who we are and what we stand for. It means that we have met rigorous, internationally recognized standards of excellence for the quality of our services and management. COA views accreditation as an important catalyst for change that builds on an organization’s strengths and helps it to achieve new levels of excellence.

COA is an independent, not-for-profit organization that establishes and upholds internationally recognized best-practice standards for social work service and behavioral health care. COA currently accredits more than 2,000 public and private organizations that serve more than 7 million individuals and families in the United States, Canada, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and other countries.

The COA accreditation process involves a detailed review and analysis of an organization’s administrative functions and service delivery practices. These standards of best practice emphasize services that are accessible, appropriate, community-based, coordinated, culturally competent, evidence-based, individualized, outcomes-oriented, provided by a skilled and supportive workforce, respectful of individual rights, strengths-based, child and family focused, and treat all people with dignity. Stakeholders, as a result, have confidence in the credibility, integrity and achievements of the organization and its programs.

Catholic Charities has been accredited by COA for 32 years, undergoing reaccreditation every 4 years. Organizations are required to maintain their accreditation every year by implementing quality improvement initiatives. The most recent initiative was to redesign and strengthen the Employee Development and Training Program and to create an online Training Library for all staff.
