Upon reviewing your rating of Soldiers' Angels I would conclude that the only reason that this charity is rated lower than others competing for similar causes is centered in 2 categories. The Pimary Revenue Growth and the Program Expenses Growth are both down significantly since the respective numbers of two years ago. Although this is an indication that they have not been successful in raising funds the numbers show that their efficiency has improved over this period. It is unknown if this was a strategic decision by the charity or not. In any event they had a perfect score in Transparency and when adjusted for the lower overall numbers this seems to be a fine charity. Most impressive is that the founder is not compensated at all! I will continue to give to this charity in spite of your mediocre rating and would suggest that those doing research on charities through Charity Navigator dig into the numbers and not just look at the "star rating" given.
