Hemophilia Federation of America is committed to transparency, a fact recently recognized when the organization received a four-star rating by Charity Navigator and a Platinum Seal of Transparency by GuideStar, two respected nonprofit watchdogs.
With an annual operating budget of more than $6 million, HFA relies on a diversity of funding sources and is proud to regularly acknowledge donors and sponsors, which helped contribute to the recent honors. In addition, low administrative and fundraising expense means HFA is able to direct nearly 94 percent of all donations toward educational programming for patients living with bleeding disorders and their families.
The four-star rating with Charity Navigator is the highest honor given by the organization which evaluates and monitors the financial health, accountability and transparency of nonprofits in the United States.
The Platinum Seal of Transparency is the top honor given by GuideStar, indicating HFA has been forthcoming in providing key information to the organization鈥檚 nonprofit profile, which is available to the public and displays the organization鈥檚 measurable impact.
Both monitoring organizations provide information on their websites about nonprofits as a guide for those needing to make educated charitable decisions. The information can be used by donors to best determine which trusted organizations should receive their charitable donations.
