Four More Stars for TC's Use of Charitable Gifts

For the third time in four years, Teachers College has received a four star rating from Charity Navigator, the nation's largest independent evaluator of charities.

The four-star rating, which exceeds industry standards, indicates that the College excels in efficiently and effectively managing its finances to ensure that dollars are spent on the ultimate beneficiaries: TC faculty and students, in New York City public schools, and teachers in professional development.

The recognition by Charity Navigator specifically noted that "the consistency in your rating is an exceptional feat, especially given the economic challenges many charities have had to face in the last year."

"We are gratified to again receive a 4-star designation from Charity Navigator and proud of the high level of accountability we maintain for our use of the private gifts and public funds we receive," said Joseph Brosnan, Vice President of Development and External Affairs.

Charity Navigator's mission is to guide "intelligent giving" by providing information on over 2,700 charities and by evaluating the financial health of each of these charities.
