Charitable Organizations Can Do a World of Good
Compassion was awarded Charity Navigator's highest award for charitable organizations.

Compassion: one of the top charitable organizations in the world!

Compassion International, one of the leading nonprofit charitable organizations, serves impoverished children and families worldwide. We consistently receive high ratings for financial accountability and integrity for charitable organizations. At least 80 percent of all expenditures are used on programs serving children. Charity Navigator awarded Compassion International four out of four stars, its highest rating for charitable organizations. In earning this rating, Compassion has demonstrated exceptional financial health, outperforming most of its peers and other charitable organizations in its efforts to manage and grow its finances in the most fiscally responsible way possible.

Charitable organizations like Compassion are rescuing children!

Compassion's programs are among the best operated by charitable organizations and are rooted in Christian child development and child advocacy. Founded by the Rev. Everett Swanson in 1952, Compassion began providing Korean War orphans with food, shelter, education and health care, as well as Christian training.

Today, Compassion helps more than 1,000,000 children in 26 countries. For charitable organizations, our model is distinctive — it's truly a long-term process, beginning in some cases with prenatal care and going all the way through leadership development for qualified young adults.
