TGR Foundation awarded 4 Star Charity Navigator rating for 9th consecutive year

TGR Foundation has had a lot to celebrate in 2021 including its 25-year anniversary, 2 million students reached through its education programs and a recent four-star rating from Charity Navigator, the highest distinction possible.

The leading charity evaluator in America, Charity Navigator assesses the fiscal health, accountability and transparency of 1.5 million charities across the nation. TGR Foundation is among the top organizations receiving the distinction nine consecutive years, an honor bestowed on the top 4% of American charities.

In a letter of congratulations Charity Navigator’s President and CEO, Michael Thatcher, commended the foundation for its performance and sent wishes for continued success.

“TGR Foundation exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work,” he wrote. “Only 4% of the charities we evaluate have received at least nine consecutive four-star evaluations. This exceptional designation sets TGR Foundation apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public it’s trustworthiness. We wish you continued success in your charitable endeavors.”

Acknowledging performance that adheres to sector best practices and execution of its mission in a financially efficient way, the four-star recognition provides information to donors and supporters that lead to greater confidence in their charitable decisions and the nonprofit sector.

“The impact the Foundation has made over the last 25 years was made possible through the ongoing support from our donors, partners and volunteers,” said Gordon McNeill, President & CEO, TGR Foundation. “As we work to reach more youth through education and provide accessible pathways forward, this distinction over the last nine years demonstrates the importance of our transparency and stewardship of the time and resources trusted to us.”
