Navy SEAL Foundation Earns Charity Navigator’s 4-Star Rating for Tenth Consecutive Year

Charity Navigator 10th consecutive year

Accomplishment Ranks America’s Premier Non-profit Organization Serving SEALs and the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) Community Among the Top 3% of rated Charities; Perfect 100 Score for the Sixth Straight Year Places Them in the Top 1% for Stewardship and Fiscal Responsibility

The Navy SEAL Foundation (NSF) has once again been awarded a perfect 4-Star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest and most-referenced independent evaluator of national charities.

Michael A. Thatcher, Charity Navigator’s President & CEO, informed the Navy SEAL Foundation’s management staff and board of directors about the impressive distinction–its tenth consecutive 4-Star rating. He also shared NSF was awarded a “perfect 100” score, another clear indication of the Foundation’s long-term commitment to their donors, fundraisers, volunteers and the elite Special Forces community that they serve. According to Thatcher, just 3% percent of charities rated by Charity Navigator received the 4-Star designation ten times in as many years. Additionally, only 70 charities can claim the designation of receiving a perfect score this year, which distinguishes the NSF as one of the top benevolent organizations in the nation.

Thatcher’s announcement stated, “This is our highest possible rating and indicates that your organization adheres to sector best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way. Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that Navy SEAL Foundation exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work.” He continued, “this exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets NSF apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”

Robin King, CEO of the Navy SEAL Foundation shared, “Our mission of support for the men, women, and children of NSW would be impossible without the backing of our donors and fundraisers as our work is 100% supported by contributions from the public. Our donors are our teammates in this work, and just like in the SEAL Teams, trust in one’s teammates is a vital component for mission success.” King continued, “NSF is committed to fostering that trust by maintaining fiscal transparency and sharing the impact of our programs with our supporters.”
