MAP International Awarded Perfect Score on New Charity Navigator Rating Service; Global Health Nonprofit is 1 of 49 in U.S. with “100” Score
ATLANTA, June 3, 2016 -- Charity Navigator, the U.S.’s largest independent nonprofit evaluator, has awarded MAP International (www.map.org), an Atlanta-based global health nonprofit, a perfect rating of “100” on its new “CN 2.1” rating system. Of 8,000 nonprofits re-ranked, MAP is one of only 49 nationwide that received a perfect score.
In this new rating system upgrade, designed to provide potential donors with more complete information, Charity Navigator considered the financial health, accountability and transparency of each organization.
MAP International delivers medicines, medical supplies and health services around the world in response to manmade and natural disasters, and to people living with neglected tropical diseases and in severe poverty.
