Charity Navigator Lists AIS As A Top Scholarship Assistance Program

November 20, 2019

Charity Navigator is the largest and most-utilized charity evaluator in America. The organization helps guide intelligent giving by evaluating the Financial Health, Accountability and Transparency of over 9,000 charities and provides basic data on the rest of the 1.8 million U.S. nonprofits. Charity Navigator accepts no advertising or donations from the organizations it evaluates, ensuring unbiased evaluations, nor does it charge the public for this trusted data.

Charity Navigator gives the charities listed in its database a star rating based on their evaluation data and American Indian Services is proud to be counted among their top charities with a rating of 4 stars. We were recently highlighted in their Top Ten List of Scholarship and Tuition Assistance Charities. Here’s a portion of the article that explains why tuition assistance is vital for so many students who are seeking to advance their situation in life:

Last year, however, Forbes reported that the cost of college is increasing nearly eight times faster than wages, and student loans now account for a greater percentage of non-housing debt than credit cards and auto loans… It’s easy to think of someone else’s education expenses as “their” issue, but access to education should be an issue we all stand behind because it has a personal, social, and economic impact on all of us.” To read more click here…
