What Has 4 Stars and Cherishes Your Trust?

December 26th, 2018

Answer: We do!

When it comes to charitable giving, we know it’s important that you, as a donor, trust the mission, the integrity, and the impact of an organization.

That’s why we are proud to announce that we have once again received a coveted Four Star Rating from Charity Navigator, with a perfect score of 100. Less than 1% of the thousands of charities rated by the trusted non-profit evaluation site have earned a perfect score, and we are pleased to be one of them.

Since 2001, Charity Navigator has utilized its rating system to assess over 9,000 American non-profits. Non-profits are eligible for a gold star rating after seven years of operation, meaning we have achieved this rating in our first two years of eligibility.

When you donate to Gary Sinise Foundation you can trust that your generosity will be applied to honorable causes such as building specially adapted smart homes for our nation’s defenders, helping Gold Star Families bond with peers and create new memories, and helping first responders acquire the essential equipment necessary to make their jobs safer.

Our commitment to fiscal responsibility and efficiency in all we do has also earned us a Gold Seal of Transparency from GuideStar. Last year, 91.12 % of every dollar raised was applied directly to supporting our defenders and their families. While some organizations struggle to directly connect recipients in need with incoming donations, we are proud that almost all of the money we take in is guided toward helping our nation’s greatest heroes.

Your donations make it possible to service our mission. Thank you for choosing the Gary Sinise Foundation.
