While Operation Compassion was responding to Hurricane Sandy and her aftermath, several awards were given by several non-profit evaluators. Forbes.com just released its Top 200 Charities in the United States and Operation Compassion was ranked #1 as the most efficient charity. In spending less than 2/10 of 1 penny on overhead expenses, Operation Compassion tied with 4 other charities. This efficiency is why Operation Compassion can partner with many other charities around the world. Operation Compassion is trusted with their donations.
Two weeks ago, The Chronicle of Philanthropy released their Top 400 Charities and Operation Compassion was ranked in the top 100 out 1.8 million charities surveyed. Under the sub-category of International Relief, Operation Compassion was ranked in the top 20 and in Tennessee was ranked 2nd only behind St. Jude’s Hospital.
In addition, GuideStar recently awarded Operation Compassion their Valued Non-Profit Exchange Seal. GuideStar is a non-profit agency which reviews more than 1.8 million non-profits to determine their transparency and accountability.
Earlier in the year, Operation Compassion was granted permission to advertise in the Combined Federal Campaign under the category of <1% of Overhead. There are only 20 charities that qualify for this status, the charity must qualify for 5 years prior to the invitation and must maintain that status in the future.
Today, The Non-Profit Times announced that Operation Compassion was listed in their Top 100 Charities in the United States. Once again, Operation Compassion was examined for accountability, transparency efficiency.
