Catholic Charities, Once Again, Earns Coveted 4-Star Rating from Charity Navigator

 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. Only 18% of the charities evaluated by Charity Navigator have received at least three consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Catholic Charities outperforms most other charities in America. This is the eight time that Catholic Charities of Los Angeles has earned this top distinction.

“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.”
