Boston, MA - Tuesday, December 9, 2014 - BELL has again earned a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for good governance, sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency. BELL is the only national provider of summer and afterschool programs to receive this honor from America's largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities.

"We blend private and public resources to help schools expand learning opportunities for children" explains BELL's Chief Executive Officer, Tiffany Gueye, Ph.D. "Integrity is paramount as we share responsibility for scholar success and deliver the greatest return on investment."

Charity Navigator works to help charitable givers make intelligent giving decisions by providing information on more than five thousand charities nationwide and by evaluating their financial health. It calculates each charity's score based upon several broad criteria, including how much is spent per dollar raised, what percentage of funds goes to programs vs. administrative and fund-raising expenses, and the organization's long-term financial health. It then assigns a rating from one to four, with four being the best rating.

Additional information about BELL's finances, including our audited financial statement, may be found here.
