HF Rated One of Our Nation’s Top Charities
Americans donate more than $375 billion to charitable organizations each year. Most of that money comes from individuals with American households giving approximately $3,000 per year to their favorite charities. While the reasons for giving may vary, one thing is clear, donors should expect that their donations are going to make a difference.
Hispanic Federation takes great pride in being a good steward of our donors’ investment in us. For the sixth consecutive year, Charity Navigator has recognized HF’s stewardship by awarding us its prestigious four-star rating. The four-star rating is Charity Navigator’s highest rating for charitable organizations and recognizes organizations that “exceed industry standards and outperform most charities” in their area of service. Only 7% of the nonprofits rated by Charity Navigator have earned the distinction of six consecutive 4-star ratings.
In 2018, 93 cents of every dollar in our budget went to support our direct services to our network of agencies and Latino families across the United States.
“We’re very proud of this recognition by Charity Navigator and the fact that we run a lean and transparent organization,” said Hispanic Federation president José Calderón. “Our board and staff take very seriously the trust that our donors place in us. Donors have choices. There are many worthy charities that deserve support and do very important work. We make sure that our donors know that we take great care of their investment and work strategically to maximize and leverage their donations for great impact.”
