    This is not rated on Charity Navigator so we have no verified information regarding distribution of funds. I am very cautious about donating to charities not rated by Charity Navigator. How about you?

    Great question!

    A good rating or a bad rating from Charity Navigator is valuable info, but such a small % (or sub-%!) of charities are presently rated on there, no rating can’t be taken as a negative.

    This video covers some of GHCF’s 20-year track record, and I personally feel like this local approach would serve the community better than, for example, the Red Cross:
