Cure Alzheimer’s Fund Receives Highest Rating from Charity Navigator

Posted: Feb. 4, 2013

Cure Alzheimer’s Fund has been awarded the highest rating for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency by Charity Navigator, the country’s largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities.

For the second consecutive year, Charity Navigator has awarded Cure Alzheimer’s Fund an “exceptional” rating of four stars out of a possible four, demonstrating adherence to good governance and fiscal responsibility. Only 16 percent of charities have received at least two consecutive four star evaluations, indicating that Cure Alzheimer’s Fund outperforms most other charities in America.

“Cure Alzheimer’s Fund co-founders Henry McCance, Phyllis Rappaport, Jacqui Morby and Chairman Jeff Morby provide the kind of exceptional leadership needed to tackle Alzheimer’s disease” says president and CEO Tim Armour. “Their commitment to the cause – covering all administrative expenses - has made it possible to put every donation directly to research.”

Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that your organization 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,” says Ken Berger, president and chief executive officer of Charity Navigator.
