Salt Lake City. (April 1, 2014) – The Kostopulos Dream Foundation/Camp Kostopulos (Camp K) recently earned its first 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, one of the most highly utilized and prestigious independent evaluators of charities. The mission of Charity Navigator is to help donors pick the best charities for the causes donors care about. Charity Navigator currently rates about 7000 charities, and provides the public with information regarding the finances of the charity, the governance of the charity, and the results of the charity.
“Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicated that your organization adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way,” wrote Charity Navigator President and CEO, Ken Berger to Executive Director of Camp K, Mircea Divricean.
On receiving the letter, Mircea Divricean said, “When I took over the leadership in November (2013), my goal was to work to fulfill our mission, build our programs and camps, and reinforce the trust our community places in us and the services we provide. We are honored to receive this recognition.”
Camp K joins a select group of charities to receive this distinction and is the only 4-star Utah charity offering year-round programs and camps for people of all abilities.
