For the eleventh consecutive year, Make-A-Wish® International has received the highest 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America's premier charity evaluator, for its ability to adhere to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way.

“I wish to congratulate Make-A-Wish International on achieving our coveted 4-star rating for sound fiscal management to accountability and transparency,” said Charity Navigator Founder and Chairman of the Board, John P.

This “exceptional designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Make-A-Wish International from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”

“We are honored to receive our eleventh consecutive 4-star rating through Charity Navigator and look forward to elevating our commitment to transparency and accountability even further in the years to come. Make-A-Wish International is deeply committed to fiscal responsibility and donor accountability, above and beyond achieving our dedication to bringing the healing power of a wish come true to children with life-threatening medical conditions around the globe.” said Make-A-Wish International President and CEO, Jon Stettner.
