JFS has 4 Stars!!!!

Roselle M. Ungar, Executive Director

I am very pleased to inform you that on February 6th Jewish Family Service of Greater New Orleans (JFS) was awarded a coveted 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for sound fiscal management and a proven commitment to accountability and transparency.

Contributors demand greater accountability, transparency, and measurable results from charities they choose to support.  In this competitive philanthropic marketplace, Charity Navigator highlights the fine work of efficient, ethical, and open non-profits.  As America’s premiere charity evaluator, Charity Navigator is the gold standard in providing contributors with essential information needed to give them greater confidence in the charitable choices they make.

JFS is honored to be given this important distinction recognizing the Agency’s hard work in our pursuit to be efficient and transparent to supporters and to the community.

The highest possible rating by Charity Navigator illustrates JFS’s commitment to good governance and highlights how we pursue our mission in a fiscally responsible way.  Only one quarter of evaluated charities receive this distinction.  We hope that this important recognition will draw attention to the incredible work JFS does on behalf of individuals and families, who rely on us in their time of need.
