Can Do Multiple Sclerosis earns high rating

EDWARDS, Colorado - Can Do Multiple Sclerosis's sound fiscal management practices and commitment to accountability and transparency has earned it a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, America's largest independent charity evaluator.

This is the sixth consecutive year that Can Do MS has earned this top distinction.

"Only 3 percent of charities we rate have received at least six consecutive four-star evaluations, indicating that Can Do MS outperforms most other charities in America," said Ken Berger, president and CEO of Charity Navigator. "Can Do MS's supporters should feel much more confident that their hard-earned dollars are being used efficiently and responsibly when it acquires such a high rating."

"We are honored to receive this four-star rating for our philanthropic efforts. Over 80 percent of the dollars we receive are committed to our programs and services," said Heidi A. Heltzel, president and CEO of Can Do MS. "Over the years, we have gone to great lengths to meet our fiscal responsibility, and we are pleased Charity Navigator has recognized our diligence in adhering to strict financial accountability. We will strive to maintain the high standards set forth by Charity Navigator, and continue to earn the trust and respect of our donors"
