Fiscal Responsibility

SparkPath is proud to have earned a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest evaluator of charities. Receiving four stars means that an organization “Exceeds or meets best practices and industry standards across almost all areas, likely to be a highly effective charity.” This 4-star designation also indicates that an organization adheres to nonprofit sector best practices and executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way, based on the areas of financial health, accountability, and transparency.
