For the 12th consecutive year, Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation received the highest possible rating from CharityNavigator.org, the nation's largest charity evaluator. The foundation was complimented for “sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency.”
The OMRF is one of 12 Oklahoma organizations that earned a four-star rating this year. In Oklahoma City, City Rescue Mission, Infant Crisis Services, Reaching Souls International, Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and the United Way of Central Oklahoma all received this distinction.
“Less than 1 percent of the charities we rate have received at least 12 consecutive four-star evaluations, indicating that Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation outperforms most other charities in America,” said Ken Berger, Charity Navigator president and CEO. “This ‘exceptional' designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”
Using publicly available financial information, Charity Navigator promotes intelligent giving by providing report cards for U.S. and international charities. The nonprofit measures charities on financial health and accountability and transparency, to predict how efficiently a charity will use support. It then assigns each charity a score from zero to four stars.
