Charity Navigator, the country’s largest charity evaluator, has again awarded the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation its highest rating.
OMRF received a four-star rating, scoring 93.21 out of a possible 100, for demonstrating good financial health and a strong commitment to accountability and transparency.
“Attaining a four-star rating verifies that OMRF outperforms most other charities in America,” said Charity Navigator President and CEO Michael Thatcher. “This exceptional designation sets OMRF apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”
Charity Navigator was created in 2001 and uses publicly available financial information to promote intelligent giving by providing reports on thousands of charities in the U.S. and internationally. The organization’s to provide the essential information needed for donors to have confidence in their decisions when making a charitable gift in the nonprofit sector.
“There’s nothing we take more seriously than being a good steward of the donations we’re entrusted with,” said OMRF President Stephen Prescott, M.D. “Donors have a wide variety of charitable options, and we work hard to ensure their gifts are used for their intended purpose: finding new treatments for deadly diseases.”
Specializing in research in the areas of cancer, heart disease, aging and autoimmune disease, OMRF was one of 24 Oklahoma charities to receive Charity Navigator’s four-star designation this year. This marks the 14th time OMRF has received this top rating.
