For the fourth year in a row, the internationally-respected evaluator of not-for-profits, Charity Navigator has designated American Committee for Shaare Zedek as a four-star charity, its highest rating. ACSZ achieved the coveted designation “for demonstrating strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency,” according to Michael Thatcher, CEO, and president of the rating agency.

This significant recognition underscores the great care taken with every dollar of tzedakah entrusted to the American Committee on behalf of Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

“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,” Thatcher said in a letter to Rachel Wolf, CEO of the American Committee. “Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that American Committee for Shaare Zedek Medical Center In Jerusalem exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work. Only 15% of the charities we evaluate have received at least four consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that American Committee for Shaare Zedek Medical Center In Jerusalem outperforms most other charities in America.”
