FFHL earns 4-star Charity Navigator rating

People can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity.


The Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land’s (FFHL’s) strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator.

This is the fifth consecutive time that the FFHL has earned this top distinction. Only 25% of charities achieve the four star rating, and only 8% achieve it five years in a row.

“The Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. “This adds the FFHL to a preeminent group of charities working to overcome our world’s most pressing challenges. People can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity.”
“It’s important our donors trust that we’re using their donations wisely to support our Christian brothers and sisters in the Holy Land,” said Fr. Peter Vasko, President of the FFHL. “Our 4-star rating demonstrates our good stewardship and financial accountability.”

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
