Earlier this year, Charity Navigator gave Compassion International a four-star rating for the 15th consecutive year. The ranking reflects Compassion’s record of financial stewardship and its consistent posture of transparency and accountability in its record keeping. The rating is the highest possible from Charity Navigator, which puts Compassion in the top 1 percent of nonprofits reviewed, as well as third overall on Charity Navigator’s top 10 charities list.
