(New York, NY) – HIAS, the international migration agency of the American Jewish community, has received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, an independent charity evaluator, highly regarded in the philanthropic world for its data-driven analysis that rates charitable organizations on their ability to efficiently manage and grow the organization's finances. According to Charity Navigator, approximately a quarter of the charities evaluated receive this, their highest rating.
According to Ken Berger, President of Charity Navigator, receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that “HIAS executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way and outperforms most other charities in America. This ‘exceptional’ designation from Charity Navigator differentiates HIAS from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”
