The MATHCOUNTS Foundation has received consecutive ratings of the coveted 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest independent evaluator of charities. Only 16% of the charities rated have received at least 2 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that MATHCOUNTS outperforms most other charities in America. “This 'exceptional' designation from Charity Navigator differentiates MATHCOUNTS from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust,” stated Ken Berger, Charity Navigator President and Chief Executive Officer.
Charity Navigator provides potential donors with essential information needed to give them greater confidence in the charitable choices they make. Their ratings show potential donors how efficiently a charity will use donor support right now, and how the organization is positioned to continue to provide programs and services in the future. A 4-star rating assures potential donors that the MATHCOUNTS Foundation continues to excel in managing its finances and their donations.

Independent Charities of America (ICA)
MATHCOUNTS is honored to be the recipient of the Independent Charities Seal of Excellence. The Independent Charities Seal of Excellence is awarded to the members of ICA and Local Independent Charities of America that have, upon rigorous independent review, been able to certify, document and demonstrate on an annual basis that they meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness and cost effectiveness. These standards include those required by the U.S. Government for inclusion in the Combined Federal Campaign, probably the most exclusive fund drive in the world. Of the 1,000,000 charities operating in the United States today, it is estimated that fewer than 50,000, or 5 percent, meet or exceed these standards, and, of those, fewer than 2,000 have been awarded this Seal.
ICA is a nonprofit association of America's best charities with a purpose to represent charities that meet the highest standards of public accountability and program effectiveness and to facilitate contributions to those charities from donors.
