“The only thing that overcomes hard luck is hard work.” ― Harry Golden
2020 has seemed like a series of unfortunate events. However, our country’s military families are no strangers to adversity. Neither is Hope For The Warriors.
We stood strong in our fiscal integrity even when the events of this year have brought times of isolation, event cancellations and turned typical fundraising up on its end.
For the 10th year in a row, Hope For The Warriors was awarded a four-star rating from Charity Navigator — a hard-earned distinction only achieved by 3 percent of rated non-profits.
And we did it in 2020. How?
We stood on a firm foundation of virtual services, established to meet our warriors where they are in their life journey.
We made agile and critical adjustments to our programming to keep warriors and our supporters connected.
We maintained that over 90 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to our virtual and community services.
None of it was easy — other than doing what’s right by who we serve.
We are adamant that we Keep HOPE Alive for active-duty and veterans, military families and caregivers, as well as families of the fallen.
There’s still time to make a difference in the lives of these heroes in 2020.
“Hope For The Warriors’ exceptional four-star rating sets the organization apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Charity Navigator President and CEO Michael Thatcher. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our four-star rating. Based on its four-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support Hope For The Warriors.”
