Donors looking to support a non-profit charity will naturally consider the particular “stripes” that identify each organization and provide a clue to its overall character and purpose. You know . . . things like:
- What are they doing?
- Why is that important to me and to the world?
- Is it a cause I believe in?
Crucial questions, right? Absolutely!
But since deciding where to apply your hard-earned resources is such a huge deal, it’s wise to dig into some even deeper issues:
- Is this organization going to be a good steward of my donation?
- Will my donations be put toward what I want to support?
- Is this organization transparent in their work and in their reporting to me?
Because you’re on this website, we’re pretty confident that you stand with us in our core cause: providing God’s Word to everyone, everywhere. But please know that we also constantly aim to answer each of these extra questions with a resounding “YES!”
Being mindful and fiscally sound when it comes to the support of our donors is very important to us and we strive to bring honor and glory to God in this area. These are some of the “stripes” that have always identified us. That’s why we’re so excited to share that Charity Navigator, America’s premier charity evaluator, has once again given Faith Comes By Hearing its highest 4-star rating.
According to the company’s president, this rating shows that FCBH “adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way.” They go on to state that this designation “differentiates [FCBH] from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”
We very much appreciate Charity Navigator’s sound methodology and impartial stance in its evaluation of American non-profits. Amazingly, the organization assesses 10 times more charities than its nearest competitor – and only one-quarter of all those considered receive a 4-star rating.
OK . . . enough about us. Let’s get back to you – our donors.
You make what we do possible. You come alongside us in a perfect picture of Christ’s Body working together as one. You do what you are called to do in obedience to Him – that’s what really matters.
While we’re thrilled to be recognized for sound fiscal stewardship, we are eternally grateful to be working in partnership with wonderful people like you. Together, we can bring God’s Word to every corner of the Earth and finally complete the Great Commission!
Shortly after posting this blog on our 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, we were blessed to receive news that we are now recognized with GuideStar’s highest Gold level ranking. We are happy to be able to share this announcement with you and we are committed to continued transparency and good stewardship of your donations.
