We are thrilled to announce that NAHA has been awarded its 15th 4-star rating from Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator is an American, independent charity watchdog organization that aims to spotlight the work of efficient and transparent organizations. Below are just a few excerpts from the letter that Charity Navigator sent to us congratulating NAHA on its 4-star achievement:
“Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that Native American Heritage Association exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work.”
“This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets NAHA apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”
Michael Thatcher, President and CEO
It is very important to know where your hard-earned dollars are going when donating to a worthy cause. We are proud to say that 97% of our budget goes towards our programs to help the Native Americans in need. For more information on NAHA’s rating, please visit www.charitynavigator.org.
Native Americans don’t want to have to rely on others for food, clothes for their children or heat for their homes. Some will go days before realizing they have nowhere else to turn. Other harsh realities of Reservation life:
- Over 80% unemployment;
- Not enough food to last through the end of the month;
- Poor housing with little or no insulation;
- No heat in their homes to ward off the cold; and,
- No money to buy medicine, clothing or other basics you and I might take for granted.
Won’t you become a monthly donor. Even just a modest amount each month can make a big difference in the lives of Native American families when it is combined with other monthly contributors. Monthly contributions help us prepare for unfortunate weather or emergencies. Or just a one-time donation will help with our Emergency Voucher Program.
