Kudos to SHI for earning Charity Navigator's highest 4-star rating for the fourth consecutive year!

We are very proud in our three planting partners that we work with to plant trees in developing countries.

Not only that they do a great job in planting trees and benefiting the life of local communities in Africa and Central America, but they also do it very efficiently and responsibly, making sure that funding is being used in the best way possible.

The latest example is coming from Sustainable Harvest International (SHI), which has earned Charity Navigator's highest 4-star rating for the fourth consecutive year! With an exceptional score in organizational efficiency and low overhead, SHI spends just 8% of its budget on administration.

This is a very impressive achievement! Here's what
Trent Stamp, President of Charity Navigator, has to say about SHI:

"Only 7% of the charities rated have received at least 4 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Sustainable Harvest International consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way, and outperforms most other charities in America. This "exceptional" designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Sustainable Harvest International from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust."
