Charity Navigator Awards

Goodwill Industries of North Louisiana, Inc.

with 4-Star Rating

 

Charity Navigator, America's largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities, has awarded Goodwill Industries of North Louisiana, Inc. the prestigious 4-star rating for good governance, sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency. Goodwill Industries of North Louisiana has attained this 4-star rating for five consecutive years.

"We are honored to receive Charity Navigator’s highest rating,” said David Tinkis, President & CEO of Goodwill Industries of North Louisiana, Inc. "This distinction reflects our continued commitment to excellence and service to the communities of North Louisiana."

Charity Navigator works to help charitable givers make intelligent giving decisions by providing information on more than five thousand charities nationwide and by evaluating their financial health. It calculates each charity’s score based upon several broad criteria, including how much is spent per dollar raised, what percentage of funds goes to programs vs. administrative and fund-raising expenses, and the organization’s long-term financial health. It then assigns a rating from one to four, with four being the best rating. Only four percent of charities attain a four-star rating.

Tinkis remarked, "This high rating coupled with Goodwill Industries of North Louisiana’s excellent reputation for providing job training and employment services to people with workplace disadvantages and disabilities highlights our focus on good stewardship of charitable contributions and maintaining the public trust.”
