IAVA Attains Prestigious 4-star Charity Navigator Rating

Leading veteran organization reaches highest charity rating while continuing to deliver major impact for post-9/11 veterans and their families

November 1, 2022

New York, NY –  Today, IAVA is proud to announce that the organization’s Charity Navigator Rating has been upgraded to 4-stars, the first such rating for the organization since 2012. Four stars is the highest rating an organization can achieve. The score is based on IAVA’s recently submitted IRS form 990 and is a three-year average of IAVA’s financial performance. 

“The updated Charity Navigator score validates our financial position and reflects upon IAVA’s consistent focus on sound expense management and expectation of executing a high level of mission performance,” said Sean Ullman, IAVA’s former Chief Operations Officer & Chief Revenue Officer. “IAVA has had major accomplishments during the last 3 years. Our frugality and tight expense practices coupled with innovative and outside-the-box decision-making have aided the organization in getting the results we set out to achieve. We are honored to be recognized among the elite organizations awarded four stars from Charity Navigator.” 

Recent wins for IAVA and the veteran community include the passage of the Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson Honoring our PACT Act,  closing the 90/10 GI Bill loophole, passing the Deborah Sampson Act, the Commander John Scott Hannon Veterans Mental Health Care Improvement Act, the creation of the 9-8-8 crisis hotline, and the Sgt. Ketchum Rural Veterans Mental Health Act. The organization also relaunched its national care management program, serving more veterans than ever before. 

“I couldn’t be prouder of what the IAVA team has done to deliver high-impact results for the veteran community, even during the incredibly challenging years of the pandemic. IAVA is in a position to maintain a healthy and thriving organization for many years to come,” said Jeremy Butler, CEO of IAVA.  “It has been an honor to work side-by-side with IAVA’s talented staff as we’ve strived to advance this organization. Those who support IAVA can continue to do so with absolute confidence.”
