The FSH Society has received its seventh consecutive Charity Navigator four-star rating! Only two percent of the charities the Charity Navigator rates have received at least seven consecutive four-star evaluations.
Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that the FSH Society adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way. This rating differentiates the FSH Society from other organizations and demonstrates to the public that they are worthy of their trust.
“As the nonprofit sector continues to grow at an unprecedented pace, savvy donors are demanding more accountability, transparency and quantifiable results from the charities they choose to support with their hard-earned dollars,” said John P. Dugan, founder and chairman of the Charity Navigator board. “Our goal in all of this is to provide donors with essential information needed to give them greater confidence in the charitable choices they make.”
The FSH Society has several fundraising events planned around the country. They are seeking companies, foundations and individuals to sponsor these occasions, which they can do with confidence knowing that the funds will be well spent. In 2013, 87.4 cents on the dollar went directly to FSH Society programs. The organization did even better in 2014, directing 91.7 cents on the dollar to programs.
The FSH Society’s 2015 calendar includes:
- July 11, Hickory Corners, Michigan—Third Annual Lake Party for FSHD.
- July 17, San Francisco, California—Songs in the Key of Steven Blier, a benefit auction and concert with pianist Steven Blier and meteoric soprano Julia Bullock,
