I have tremendous news to share! With your support, the Tampa YMCA has achieved the coveted 4-star Charity Navigator rating for the fourth year in a row! America’s largest independent charity evaluator grants us this top distinction because of our sound fiscal management practices and commitment to accountability and transparency.
Only the most fiscally responsible organizations receive a 4-star rating. In fact, out of thousands, only one of four nonprofits earns the coveted distinction. Simply put, this rating means we exceed industry standards and outperform most charities in our area of work. Furthermore, only 20-percent of the charities evaluated have received a 4-star rating four years in a row. If you can’t tell, we’re very proud to remain in this distinguished group of charities as we use our resources wisely to strengthen the foundations of our community.
I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that we couldn’t do any of our cause-driven work without supporters like you. As we kick off our Strong Communities Campaign this month, remember you can trust your support and donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity.
Every dollar donated to the community through the Tampa Y stays local and has a lasting impact on your neighbors. Donations empower kids to do better in school, help cancer, Parkinson’s and arthritis patients heal and provide seniors with opportunities to connect with others. Generous gifts also help teach kids how to swim, send them to camp and keep our doors open to all – regardless of financial limitations.
Now’s the time to make a difference. We need your help to strengthen the local community. Learn more about how you can support the Y’s cause, or contact Amanda.Marshall@tampaymca.org. Thanks for your continued support!
