We Did It Again...Foundation Receives Highest Rating

Charity NavigatorFor the seventh year in a row, the CDC Foundation earned a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator. We have a great staff, and I know we’re doing good work. Across the organization professionals here at the Foundation demonstrate their dedication to effective stewardship and the advancement of CDC's work on a daily basis. It’s a terrific nod to our team to have the nation's largest evaluator of charities recognize and quantify the Foundation’s success in the areas of management, transparency and financial accountability.

Nationally, only two percent of charities rated by Charity Navigator have received seven consecutive 4-star evaluations.

According to Charity Navigator, “This ‘exceptional’ designation differentiates CDC Foundation from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.” This means we're exceeding industry standards and outperforming the majority of other charities based on our sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency.

As the sole entity authorized by Congress to raise funds on behalf of CDC, we are proud to build strategic partnerships to advance CDC's life-saving work. We are grateful to our partners who continue to invest their resources and pursue their philanthropic and programmatic goals with us. We believe this 4-star rating from Charity Navigator serves as an example of our expertise in partnership building and program management and our commitment to helping CDC do more, faster.
