Why IFCJ Ratings Matter

IFCJ ratings from independent, third-party, charitable review and donor information sites are intended to offer current and prospective donors clear and unbiased information about the financial health, accountability and transparency of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization.

There are many Websites which rate and evaluate charities, including the Better Business Bureau (BBB), CharityNavigator, CharityWatch, GiveWell, and more. Over the next several weeks and months, we will explain the various criteria set by these Websites and organizations and try and explain the meaning behind the IFCJ ratings.

IFCJ takes financial accountability and good stewardship of its donors’ funds very seriously, and believes that openness and transparency is the most effective way to show how gifts to The Fellowship were allocated to best serve Israel and needy Jewish people worldwide. IFCJ ratings matter to the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, and they matter to IFCJ donors.

The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews was founded in 1983 by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein. IFCJ’s mission is to promote understanding between Christians and Jews, build broad support for Israel, and replace our history of discord with a relationship marked by dialogue, respect, and cooperation.
