The V Foundation for Cancer Research, a top-rated cancer research charity, is excited to announce, for the ninth year in a row, a 4-Star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest evaluator of charities. A 4-Star rating is the highest possible rating, indicating the V Foundation adheres to sector best practices and is financially efficient as it works toward Victory Over Cancer®.
“The V Foundation has always maintained transparency and financial integrity as top priorities,” said Jefferson Parker, Chief Operating Officer of the V Foundation. “We believe that earning donors’ trust is critical to our goal of ending cancer by increasing our ability to fund important research.”
The V Foundation awards 100% of direction donations to cancer research and programs. Its endowment covers administrative expenses. The 4-Star designation from Charity Navigator sets the V Foundation apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness. Donors can be more confident that in supporting a highly-rated charity by Charity Navigator, they will be supporting organizations that are more financially healthy, accountable and transparent. Only 3% of the charities Charity Navigator evaluates have received at least nine consecutive 4-Star evaluations, indicating the V Foundation consistently ranks among the top charities in America.
“Our Board of Directors is extremely pleased to be awarded this rating by Charity Navigator,” said Connie Skidmore, a V Foundation Board Member. “The efforts by our strong management team, as well as support by our many volunteers, have contributed to our ability to effectively and efficiently use donor funds to further our goal of finding cures for cancer. We will continue to strive to operate a best-in-class organization, knowing that our family of donors, grant recipients and supporters rely on our success.”
The V Foundation has proudly awarded more than $225 million for cutting-edge cancer research. In addition to a 4-Star rating from Charity Navigator, the V Foundation is a GuideStar platinum-rated charity.
