SOME Receives GuideStar Platinum Rating, 4-Star Charity Navigator Rating

CN_ProfilePage_StarRating_052621_transparent_4Stars.pngFor 2021, SOME is once again being recognized as a four-star rated Charity Navigator (CN) nonprofit! Our Charity Navigator financial rating is 94.51/100 and our accountability + transparency rating is 100/100 (Charitynavigator.org). Charity Navigator is a tool used to empower millions of donors by providing them with free access to data, tools, and resources to guide philanthropic decision-making. Through the ratings, nonprofits are equipped with the nonprofit sector's premier trust indicator and a powerful platform to raise awareness and funds.

This year SOME was also awarded with a GuideStar Platinum Seal of Transparency. This highlights the transparency and the flow of information between our non-profit and donors. In 2021, 78,262 organizations had a Seal. This represented about 5 percent of the more than 1.7 million nonprofits registered with the IRS. Nearly half of Seal holders had earned a Bronze Seal. 19 percent of Seal holders were at the Silver level, 20 percent at Gold, and 15 percent at Platinum.

This wouldn't be possible without our wonderful donors, and the exemplary team of employees at SOME.
