Transparency & Accountability
We take great pride in being good stewards of the resources you entrust to us. As an award-winning Christian development organization, we place the highest priority on transparency and financial accountability. Coptic Orphans has been diligent about attaining the highest ratings with agencies who rate nonprofits on these criteria.
Perhaps most importantly, Coptic Orphans’ sound fiscal management and commitment to transparency and accountability have earned it the highest 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, North America’s largest independent charity evaluator, for 9 consecutive years. This puts Coptic Orphans among only 3% of the nonprofits Charity Navigator reviews.
Charity Navigator defines financial soundness as how well the charity manages its finances on a day-to-day basis. That means that Coptic Orphans spends less money to raise more. Our fundraising efforts stay in line with the scope of the programs and services we provide, and we keep administrative costs within reasonable limits. Coptic Orphans also devotes the majority of its spending to its programs and services. Moreover, Coptic Orphans has made a personal commitment to support each child (even if that child were to lose their sponsor) and their educational aspirations through high school, college, and even graduate school.
Coptic Orphans is also rated highly for its transparency, the free and easy public access to corporate and financial information. Transparency is particularly important for a charity like Coptic Orphans because of its responsibilities to its donors, sponsors, and most importantly, the children it serves.
While Coptic Orphans’ revenue has shown tremendous growth, we have never lost focus on maintaining responsible stewardship over the resources entrusted to us. Our financial accountability and reporting processes have been praised consistently over the years.
