VIRGINIA BEACH, VA – Consumers Digest has named Operation Blessing International as one of “America’s Top Charities.”
Two hundred and twenty one charities out of 2,400 were ranked in seven categories: development/distribution, educational/cultural, environment/wildlife, health, humanitarian, human services and religiously affiliated. According to Consumers Digest, the rankings are based on charities’ spending efficiency—that is, the percentage of generated income that’s spent on their mission and not on other costs, such as fundraising, marketing and administration. A charity had to distribute at least 65 percent of its total funds to its programs to make Consumers Digest’s list.
Operation Blessing International was named among the top three charities in the Humanitarian category, due to our 98.83% efficiency rating.
“We are honored to be recognized by Consumers Digest as one of ‘America’s Top Charities,’” said Bill Horan, president of Operation Blessing International.
