ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Faith Comes By Hearing (FCBH) is pleased to announce they have again been awarded the prestigious 4-star rating from Charity Navigator – the country's leading evaluator of charities. Being recognized for the sixth straight year elevates the ministry into the top 3% of all charities. According to Charity Navigator this means FCBH "demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust."
In his notification letter, Charity Navigator's President and CEO Ken Berger writes:
We are proud to announce Faith Comes By Hearing has earned our sixth consecutive 4-star rating. …Only 3% of the charities we rate have received at least 6 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Faith Comes By Hearing outperforms most other charities in America.
This recognition is especially meaningful to Faith Comes By Hearing as Charity Navigator evaluates 10 times the number of charities than the next closest organization and draws more visitors to their website than every other charity evaluator combined. Their two-part methodology – which focuses on sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency – has been covered by Forbes, Business Week and Kiplinger's Financial Magazine. Charity Navigator estimates their evaluations have "influenced approximately $10 billion in charitable gifts."
Jerry Jackson, FCBH's founder and president, states, "It has always been our priority to be good stewards with every donation given to complete our mission. The best way to ensure accountability is to be open with our finances. As an outside and impartial evaluator, Charity Navigator's continued recognition of our transparency and fiscal responsibility is testimony to our current and prospective donors that they are giving to a ministry that is using their funds wisely."
Faith Comes By Hearing remains focused on reaching the world with God's Word. They currently have Scripture recordings in 717 languages that can be freely accessed on their website, via podcasts in their iTunes store, or on the Bible.is and Deaf Bible.is apps.
