West Palm Beach— Planned Parenthood of South Florida and the Treasure Coast received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America's largest independent charity evaluator for the seventh consecutive year.
Only 2% of charities have received at least 7 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Planned Parenthood of South Florida and the Treasure Coast consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way, and outperforms most other charities in America. This “exceptional” designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Planned Parenthood of South Florida and the Treasure Coast from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.

Founded in 2001, Charity Navigator is the nation's largest evaluator of charities. Charity Navigator's rating system examines two broad areas of a charity's financial health — how responsibly it functions day to day and how well positioned it is to sustain its programs over time. Each charity is then awarded an overall rating, ranging from zero to four stars.
