SOUTHFIELD, Mich., May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Helping Hand for Relief and Development's (HHRD) strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America's largest independent charity evaluator. This is the 10th consecutive time that HHRD has earned this top distinction.
"It's important our donors trust that we're using their donations wisely to accomplish HHRD's humanitarian relief mission," said HHRD CEO Javaid Siddiqui. "Our 4-star Charity Navigator rating demonstrates to our supporters our good governance and financial accountability."
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, CN upgraded their methodology for rating each charity's' financial health with CN 2.1. These enhancements further substantiate the financial health of our four-star charities.
"Helping Hand for Relief and Development's exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public," according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator.
