GRIFFITH | Lake Area United Way has been named a 4-Star Charity by Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest charity watchdog evaluator.

LAUW, the community impact and fundraising organization, was cited for its financial performance, accountability and transparency standards.

“In the current economic environment, it’s critical our supporters and the community trust that we’re investing donor contributions wisely to support children, youth and families,” said Jeremy Miller, chair of LAUW’s board.

“We have always worked hard to be an open and transparent organization, and the 4-star Charity Navigator rating is further proof that we take these responsibilities very seriously.”

Miller, who is regional vice president for Centier Bank, said increased scrutiny over transparency and accountability in this year’s Charity Navigator evaluation system resulted in the elevation of United Way’s rating from 3 to 4 stars.
