commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a
4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity
evaluator. This is the eighth consecutive
time that PSI has earned this
Since 2002, using objective, data-driven analysis, Charity Navigator
has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating.
In 2011, Charity Navigator added 17 metrics, focused on governance and ethical
practices as well as measures of openness, to its ratings methodology.
These “Accountability & Transparency” metrics, which account for 50
percent of a charity’s overall rating, reveal which charities have “best
practices” that minimize the chance of unethical activities and whether they
freely share basic information about their organization with their donors and
PSI’s coveted 4-star rating puts it in a very select group of
high-performing charities,” according to Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of
Charity Navigator. “Out of the thousands of nonprofits Charity Navigator
evaluates, only one out of four earns 4 stars -- a rating that demands rigor,
responsibility and commitment to openness. Patient Services, Inc.’s supporters should feel much more
confident that their hard-earned dollars are being used efficiently and
responsibly when it acquires such a high rating.”
“It’s important our donors trust that we’re using our
funding wisely in order to restore hope and health to chronically ill patients through
premium and copayment support,” said Dana
Kuhn, President and Founder of PSI. “Our 4-star Charity Navigator
rating demonstrates to our supporters that we take our fiduciary and governance
responsibilities very seriously.”
