sq-charity-navigatorFor the eleventh year in a row, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network has received the prestigious four-star rating from Charity Navigator, the leading charity evaluator in the United States. Fewer than 1 percent of the charities that the organization rates have achieved this milestone, indicating, in Charity Navigator’s words, “that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network outperforms most other charities in America.”

“We are very pleased to receive this recognition for the eleventh consecutive year,” said Julie Fleshman, president and CEO of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. “It demonstrates to our donors and supporters that their trust in our organization is well placed.”

The “exceptional” rating is based on the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency, as evidenced by the detailed metrics available for public viewing on Charity Navigator’s website. Simply stated, the data shows that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network conducts its activities in an efficient, ethical and open manner.

For current and potential donors, the four-star rating out of a possible four stars signifies that contributions to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network will be wisely invested. Donors can rely on the objective, data-driven approach that Charity Navigator takes to assess nonprofits and the comprehensive information it publishes.

“Living up to the standards that earn us our four-star rating is part of our DNA,” said Fleshman, “and a key reason why we have made steady progress in changing the course of pancreatic cancer and creating hope for those touched by this deadly disease.”
