Amplio Earns Top Ratings from Charity Navigator and GuideStar

Amplio has received Charity Navigator's four-star rating and the Candid/GuideStar Platinum Seal of Transparency. Here’s what these ratings mean.

We are delighted to share that Charity Navigator, the world's largest and most trusted nonprofit evaluator, has recognized Amplio Network with its top four-star rating.

Our organization is incredibly proud to have earned the four-star rating. Those four stars are a symbol of trust, representing the measures we take to ensure we are accountable, transparent, and responsible stewards of donor dollars.

For the second year in a row, we also received the Candid/GuideStar Platinum Seal of Transparency, the highest level of recognition. The award recognizes organizations with a high level of fiscal and programmatic accountability and transparency.

What is a Charity Navigator Four-Star Rating?

Charity Navigator aims to make impactful philanthropy easier by providing accessible information and charity ratings to help donors give with confidence. The organization rates nonprofits on a 100-point scale based on performance across four key areas:

  • Accountability & Finance

  • Impact & Results

  • Leadership & Adaptability

  • Culture & Community

A four-star rating is given to organizations who score a 90 or above, which is considered "exceptional." Amplio scored 100. This is the highest possible rating. It verifies that we exceed industry standards and outperform most charities in our area of work.

Candid/GuideStar Platinum Seal of Transparency

Amplio has also earned the Candid Platinum Seal of Transparency. Candid (formerly GuideStar) is the world's largest database of nonprofit organizations. It provide donors with the information necessary to make smart decisions. The Platinum Seal indicates that Amplio shares clear information with the public about our goals, strategies, capabilities, achievements, and indicators that highlight our impact.

Why it’s important for our donors

Top ratings from Charity Navigator and Candid/GuideStar set Amplio apart. Whether you are a first-time Amplio donor or a longterm Talking Book program supporter, we want you to know your dollar makes a life-changing difference.

“Transparency and responsibility are Amplio core values,” said Christine Chew, Amplio board president. "It’s important for us as an organization to ensure that our donors, funders, and global partners know we are being held accountable as we manage their investments and together work to make a meaningful and measurable impact in the world's most vulnerable communities. Having their trust is essential.”

Why it’s important for our partners

As we set our sights on new goals and project for 2023, having a top rating from a trusted resources like Charity Navigator and Candid allows our partners, along with their funders, to also have confidence in Amplio. Earning two top charity ratings helps verify our commitment to transparency and responsibility as we work together to design and deliver innovative programs and digital solutions for social impact.

Proven accountability and impact

Going the extra mile to document and share key information about our accountability and finances, impact and results, leadership, and organizational culture allows Amplio to make smarter decisions too. It gives us a more perspective, allowing us to see what we have achieved, what we need to improve, and where we want to go.

It's a collaborative effort. We wouldn’t have been able to accomplish the incredible results we shared in our 2021 Impact Report, or look positively toward our future and all that we hope to achieve, without the support of our donors and partners.

Thank you for your partnership and support!
