A Four-Star Organization  

First sentence should read - Rappahannock United Way is proud to qualify for the four star rating from Charity Tracker, America's largest and most utilized evaluator of charities!

Charity Navigator measures a charity’s ability to effectively manage and grow its finances.  RUW uses 84% of its funds toward programming, with the remaining funds split between administrative and fundraising costs.  Four stars from Charity Navigator means that RUW “exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in its cause.”  In fact, only ¼ of all charities rated by Charity Navigator reach the four-star echelon.  

Rappahannock United Way President Janel Donohue shared why this four-star rating means so much in the nonprofit world—and its significance to Rappahannock United Way in particular. 

"Our donors and grantors entrust us with their most precious gifts: time, resources, and money, so Rappahannock United Way works diligently to ensure the highest return on their investment.”  Donohue added: “The Four Star Charity Navigator Rating is an acknowledgement  that we are living  our core values-- Stewardship, Accountability, Integrity, Service and Respect and we are delighted by that."

Such good standings on Charity Navigator’s website will help community members make informed decisions before giving.  Spread the word that by giving to Rappahannock United Way, you can make a difference and change lives.  Check out our rating in more detail here.
