USA (MNN) — Audio Bible ministry Faith Comes By Hearing has again been awarded the prestigious 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, a charity evaluator.
According to a news release from Faith Comes by Hearing (FCBH), being recognized for the sixth straight year elevates the ministry into the top 3% of all charities.
Charity Navigator said this means FCBH "demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust."
In the notification letter, Charity Navigator President and CEO Ken Berger wrote, "We are proud to announce Faith Comes By Hearing has earned our sixth consecutive 4-star rating. Only 3% of the charities we rate have received at least six consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Faith Comes By Hearing outperforms most other charities in America."
FCBH said the recognition is especially meaningful as "Charity Navigator evaluates 10 times the number of charities than [its] next closest organization and draws more visitors to [its] Web site than every other charity evaluator combined."
FCBH founder and president Jerry Jackson said in the news release, "It has always been our priority to be good stewards with every donation given to complete our mission. The best way to ensure accountability is to be open with our finances."
Jackson added, "As an outside and impartial evaluator, Charity Navigator's continued recognition of our transparency and fiscal responsibility is testimony to our current and prospective donors that they are giving to a ministry that is using their funds wisely."
