NEW YORK, 11/28/2017 – PowerMyLearning’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator and the 2017 Platinum Seal of Transparency on Guidestar, a company that gathers and disseminates information about every single IRS-registered nonprofit organization.
This is the 10th consecutive year that PowerMyLearning has earned this top distinction. Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. Platinum is the highest level of recognition offered by GuideStar, and demonstrates that PowerMyLearning is an organization that is focused on measuring our progress and results, while showing our improvement and growth year over year.
According to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator, a 4-star rating sets PowerMyLearning apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public.
“It’s important our donors trust that we’re using their donations wisely to accomplish PowerMyLearning’s mission,” said Elisabeth Stock, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of PowerMyLearning. “Our 4-star Charity Navigator rating demonstrates to our supporters our good governance and financial accountability.”
