For Immediate Release

The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) has received Charity Navigator’s highest 4-star rating for the second consecutive year, given in recognition of JDC outperforming most charities in the U.S.

Charity Navigator, the largest independent evaluator of philanthropies in the U.S., provides information and evaluates the financial health of more than 5,400 charities.

“This recognition is a rewarding reminder that JDC continues to distinguish itself both for its fiscal responsibility and critical global humanitarian program,” said JDC’s CEO Steven Schwager.

In addition to being named one of Charity Navigator’s “10 of the Best Charities Everyone’s Heard Of” earlier this year, JDC is among the Non Profit Times’ Top 100 nonprofits and is an accredited charity with the Better Business Bureau.

“Only 19% of the charities we rate have received at least 2 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way,” said Ken Berger, president and CEO of Charity Navigator.“This‘exceptional’ designation from Charity Navigator differentiates American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”

Logging In With One of Your Social Web Site Logins

Instead of trying to remember a bunch of special username/password combinations to log in to different web sites that you visit, you can now link your account on this web site to your account on one (or more) of the social media web sites shown and log in with the same username/password combination that you use on that social web site to log in to our site.

To provide this connection in a secure manner, we use Gigya, a social network connection provider that works behind the scenes to make safe, secure connections between user accounts on different systems, such as popular social media web sites like Facebook and web sites like ours where you are actively involved in social issues and causes.

Each time you log in, Gigya uses special application programming interfaces (APIs) to establish the connection between the sites and validate your username and password. Neither our web site or Gigya receive or store your social network passwords.

In addition to reducing the number of logins you have to remember, connecting your accounts can make it quicker and easier to share an activity or cause you feel passionately about from our web site with your friends on your social web sites.

You can break the connection between your accounts at any time.
