Silver Spring, MD, November 17, 2022 – Resilience Across Borders is proud to announce that its strong financial health and ongoing accountability and transparency has earned a Three-Star Rating from Charity Navigator. This rating designates Resilience Across Borders as an official “Give with Confidence” charity, indicating that our organization is using its donations effectively based on Charity Navigator’s criteria. Charity Navigator is America’s largest and most-utilized independent charity evaluator. Since 2001, the organization has been an unbiased and trusted source of information for more than 11 million donors annually.
Charity Navigator analyzes nonprofit performance based on four key indicators, referred to as beacons. Currently, nonprofits can earn scores for the Impact & Results, Accountability & Finance, Culture & Community, and Leadership & Adaptability beacons.
“We are delighted to provide Resilience Across Borders with third-party accreditation that validates their operational excellence,” said Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator. “We are eager to see the good work that Resilience Across Borders is able to accomplish in the years ahead.”
“Our Three-Star Charity Navigator rating is further validation that our supporters can trust our commitment to good governance and financial health,” said Ariana Lobasso, Executive Director of Resilience Across Borders. “We hope that it will introduce our work to new supporters who can help us advance our mission to increase access to mental health interventions for all children and adolescents.”
Currently, Resilience Across Borders has partnered with three elementary schools serving economically marginalized communities to bring our program to their 5th grade students. Educators trained in our Resilience Builder Program-Universal™ teach children skills that research shows increase both resilience (the ability to adapt to life’s challenges) and academic engagement. Resilience Across Borders looks forward to expanding our impact to more schools each year.
Resilience Across Borders’ rating and other information about charitable giving are available free of charge on charitynavigator.org.
