Consumer Reports included Unbound on its recently released list of best charities for donations.

In compiling its list and tips for the giving season, Consumer Reports said it looked for consensus among three charity watchdog groups: the BBB Wise Giving Alliance, Charity Navigator and CharityWatch. Unbound meets all 20 standards of charity accountability set forth by the BBB Wise Giving Alliance. The organization earns four out of four stars from Charity Navigator, and it’s the only one in the child sponsorship category to get an A-plus from CharityWatch.

“The recognition from Consumer Reports and our top ratings from independent charity evaluators result from our commitment to solid financial stewardship and transparency,” Unbound President and CEO Scott Wasserman said. “We put the needs of sponsored friends and their families first.”
