POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region has earned a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator.

“It’s important our donors trust that we’re using their donations wisely to accomplish our mission to help build a stronger, healthier community,” said Jeannie Montano, President and CEO of United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region. “Our four-star Charity Navigator rating demonstrates to our supporters our good governance and financial accountability.”

Since 2002, using objective analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a four-star rating. In 2011, Charity Navigator added 17 metrics, focused on governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness, to its ratings methodology.

These Accountability and Transparency metrics, which account for 50 percent of a charity’s overall rating, reveal which charities operate in accordance with industry best practices and whether they are open with their donors and stakeholders.

“United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region’s exceptional four-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” said  Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our four-star rating. This adds United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region to a preeminent group of charities working to overcome our world’s most pressing challenges. Based on its 4-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support this United Way.”
