Financial Transparency: Charity Navigator

March of Dimes recognizes that Charity Navigator is a trusted benchmark by many people in making their nonprofit donations. Currently, Charity Navigator recognizes March of Dimes as a two star organization. We want to ensure our staff and volunteers are equipped to answer questions about our Charity Navigator rating and also tell the story of our trajectory of improved financial health which will drive a higher rating.

The rating is based on a three year rolling average and our current score is based on data from 2018-2020. Due to the nature of the rating’s three year rolling average, the current score lags the reality of our current financial position and the progress we have made in the last few years.

We have prepared the following resources for volunteer leaders to address questions about Charity Navigator:
