EOD Warrior Foundation Earns Coveted 4-STAR Rating From Charity Navigator

(Niceville, FL, November 2, 2018) – EOD Warrior Foundation’sstrong financial health and commitment to accountabilityand transparency haveearned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator.

Since 2002, using objective 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 account for 50 percent of a charity’s overall rating, reveal which charities operate in accordance with industry best practices and whether they are open with their donors and stakeholders.  On June 1, 2016, Charity Navigator upgraded its methodology for rating each charity’s’ financial health. These enhancements further substantiate the financial health of 4-star charities.

“EOD Warrior Foundation’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. This adds EOD Warrior Foundation to a preeminent group of charities working to overcome our world’s most pressing challenges. Based on its 4-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support EOD Warrior Foundation.”

“It’s important our donors trust that we’re using their donations wisely to improve the quality of life for the EOD family by providing financial relief, scholarship opportunities, physical, social, and emotional support,” said Nicole Motsek, executive director of the EOD Warrior Foundation.  “Our 4-star Charity Navigator rating demonstrates to our supporters our good governance practices and financial accountability and transparency.”
