NEW YORK, October 2010 – The Children’s Aid Society is pleased to announce that it has received its tenth consecutive four-star rating from Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest independent charity evaluator.

The charity’s leadership states that the ranking has made a difference among donors in tough economic times.

“We are delighted that Charity Navigator has evaluated Children’s Aid and found it ‘exceptional.’ We know that donors rely on the Charity Navigator rankings to help them decide how to direct their donations,” said Children’s Aid President and CEO Richard R.

According to the evaluator’s web site, its “ratings provide clear, objective, and reliable assessments of the financial health of charities. By utilizing our ratings, givers can truly know how a charity's financial health compares with other charities throughout the country. Givers can be confident that in supporting those charities rated highly by Charity Navigator, they will be supporting organizations that are fiscally responsible and financially healthy.”
