The Angiogenesis Foundation announced today it has earned the esteemed 4-star rating from Charity Navigator – America’s premier independent charity evaluator. The honor is awarded to an elite group of nonprofits meeting the highest criteria possible for financial health, accountability and transparency.

“We are honored to be named again among this elite group of the nation’s top nonprofits.

In its quest to help donors make informed decisions, it objectively evaluates tens of thousands of nonprofits across the country. Its ratings system shows donors how efficiently a nonprofit will use their financial support, how well it has sustained its programs and services over time, and its level of commitment to good governance, best practices, and openness with information.
