Awards & Accomplishments
PAF is honored to be the recipient of three distinguished recognitions in 2018 – with the latest being named one of the top 100 charities by the Chronicle of Philanthropy.
While the evaluation criteria used by GuideStar, Charity Navigator and The Chronicle vary, these distinctions signify that the level and consistency of the financial stewardship applied to donations and the progress PAF is making toward its mission is among the best in the nation’s non-profit community.
Charity Navigator 4-Star Rating
Patient Advocate Foundation received Charity Navigator’s esteemed 4-star rating in 2018, marking the ninth consecutive year that PAF has been awarded this highest possible rating, a level of consistency achieved by only 2% of all charities evaluated.
Founded in 2001, Charity Navigator has become the nation’s largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities. In their quest to help donors, Charity Navigator’s team of professional analysts examine tens of thousands of non-profit financial documents and used this knowledge to develop an unbiased, objective, numbers-based rating system to assess over 9,000 of America’s charities. Charity Navigator provides these ratings so that charitable givers / social investors can make intelligent giving decisions, and so that the nonprofit sector can improve its performance.
Specifically, Charity Navigator’s rating system examines two broad areas of a charity’s performance; their Financial Health and their Accountability & Transparency. Ratings show givers how efficiently they believe a charity will use their support today, how well it has sustained its programs and services over time and their level of commitment to good governance, best practices and openness with information.
