WAYS TO GIVE
Charity Navigator 4 Star Charity
Dear Michael W. Hagee:
On behalf of Charity Navigator, I wish to congratulate The Admiral Nimitz Foundation on attaining the coveted 4-star
rating for demonstrating strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency.
The nonprofit sector is advancing and expanding. As our organizations evolve, so do the desires and interests of our
supporters. Astute donors are yearning for greater accountability, transparency, and for concrete results from us. With
more than 1.5 million American charities, Charity Navigator aims to accentuate the work of efficient and transparent
organizations. 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.
Based on the most recent information available, we have issued a new rating for your organization. We are proud to
announce The Admiral Nimitz Foundation has earned our fourth consecutive 4-star rating. This is our highest possible
rating and indicates that your organization adheres to sector best practices and executes its mission in a financially
efficient way. Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that The Admiral Nimitz Foundation exceeds industry standards and
outperforms most charities in your area of work. Only 17% of the charities we evaluate have received at least 4
consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that The Admiral Nimitz Foundation outperforms most other charities in
America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets The Admiral Nimitz Foundation apart from its
peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.
Forbes, Business Week, and Kiplinger's Financial Magazine, among others, have profiled and celebrated our unique
method of applying data-driven analysis to the charitable sector. We evaluate ten times more charities than our nearest
competitor and currently attract more visitors to our website than all other charity rating groups combined, thus making
us the leading charity evaluator in America. Our data shows that users of our site donated more than they planned to
before viewing our findings, and in fact, it is estimated that last year Charity Navigator influenced approximately $10
billion in charitable gifts.
Your achievement and the 4-star rating will enhance your organization's fundraising and public relations efforts. Our
favorable review of The Admiral Nimitz Foundation's financial health and commitment to accountability &
transparency is now visible on our website.
We wish you continued success in your charitable endeavors.
President and CEO
