Mission Waco one of 7% of all non-profits in the nation
Charity Navigator <www.charitynavigator.org>, the leading charity evaluator in America, just recognized Mission Waco’s fourth “exceptional” rating for financial and accountability/transparency. The ministry received a combined score of 69.09 out of a possible score of 70. According to their letter, “Only 7% of all charities we rate have received at least 4 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Mission Waco/Mission World out performs most charities in America.” The recognition is a testament of the hard work and integrity of Mission Waco’s administrative staff and commitment to be “beyond reproach” as a Christian ministry. The organization is also approved by the Better Business Bureau. As community-based organization that relies on donors, volunteers, collaborations, and funders. With over a million non-profits in the US, fiscal accountability has become a critical value for donors. We’re proud you can trust our integrity!
