For the fifth consecutive year, the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast (HSTC) has received the highest ranking possible — a coveted 4-star rating — from Charity Navigator for demonstrating strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency.

America's largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities, Charity Navigator has placed the HSTC in the top 10 percent of all charities reviewed, as only one out of every 10 receives 4 stars five years in a row.

According to Charity Navigator, astute donors are yearning for greater accountability, transparency, and concrete results. With more than 1.5 million American charities, Charity Navigator aims to accentuate the work of efficient and transparent organizations. 

Michael Thatcher, president and CEO of Charity Navigator, stated, “The intent of our work is to provide donors with essential information to give them greater confidence in both the charitable decisions that they make and the nonprofit sector … Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work.”

Forbes, Business Week, and Kiplinger's Financial Magazine, among others, have profiled and celebrated Charity Navigator’s unique method of applying data-driven analysis to the charitable sector.

“We are very proud of our team for achieving this ranking,” said Frank Valente, president & CEO of the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast. “By receiving the highest ranking possible from the leading charity evaluator in America, our donors can rest assured knowing their donations are being used wisely to help the shelter animals.”
