Shriners Hospitals for Children rated #1 Health-related Charity in United States

Shriners Hospitals for Children was given top rating as a Health-related charity in the December 2000 issue of SmartMoney, a financial magazine published jointly by Dow Jones & Company, Inc. and Hearst Communications, Inc.

This rating was developed from reviews of three years of financial information for the 100 largest charities (by revenue). They used three criteria for evaluation:

  1. how much of a charity's budget actually goes to program activities;

  2. how much of every dollar donated from the public goes to fund-raising;

  3. how much a charity saves of incoming money.
