Clinic receives prestigious 4-star rating

Charity Navigator, America’s largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities, has awarded Family Health Partnership Clinic the prestigious 4-star rating for good governance, sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency.  The Clinic achieved the 4-star rating on its first application to Charity Navigator.

“We are honored to receive Charity Navigator’s highest rating,” said Cathy Patenaude, Development Coordinator. “This distinction reflects our accountability to all our constituencies and commitment to remain true to our mission of providing high quality medical care to the underserved.”

Charity Navigator works to help charitable givers make intelligent giving decisions by providing information on more than seven thousand charities nationwide and by evaluating their financial health. It calculates each charity’s score based upon several broad criteria, including how much is spent per dollar raised, what percentage of funds goes to programs vs. administrative and fund-raising expenses, and the organization’s long-term financial health. It then assigns a rating from one to four, with four being the best rating.  Review rating here
