Our Charity Ratings

NPCA meets all of the Better Business Bureau (BBB) Wise Giving Alliance Standards for Charity Accountability, and has earned the Candid (formerly Guidestar) Gold Seal of Transparency and a four star high rating from Charity Navigator.
We achieved these ratings from America’s premier independent charity evaluators because we exceed industry standards and outperform most other public charities in terms of efficiency, transparency and financial health.
NPCA once again received top-rated status from GreatNonprofits in 2021 for the 10th year in a row.
