Congratulations to our friends at State University of Oneonta for once again, in fact for the tenth year in a row, being honored for their College at Oneonta Foundation.

The College at Oneonta Foundation’s financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator.    This is the 10th consecutive time that the College Foundation has earned this distinction. Since 2002, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a four-star rating.

“Attaining a four-star rating verifies that the State University College at Oneonta Foundation Corporation exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in their area of work,” according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only 3 percent of the charities we evaluate have received at least 10 consecutive four-star evaluations, indicating that the College at Oneonta Foundation outperforms most other charities in America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets the College at Oneonta Foundation apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”

Jim Doig, a SUNY Oneonta alumnus from the class of 1975, is the president of the College at Oneonta Foundation Board of Directors.

“The College at Oneonta Foundation supports affordable access to high-quality academic experiences for SUNY Oneonta students,” said Doig. “It’s important our alumni and donors trust that we’re using their donations wisely and according to their wishes. Our four-star Charity Navigator rating demonstrates our good governance and financial accountability.”

Gifts in support of SUNY Oneonta’s comprehensive campaign, “Grow. Thrive. Live. The Future of SUNY Oneonta,” will help keep SUNY Oneonta affordable, accessible and inclusive. To date, the “Grow. Thrive. Live.” campaign has raised $22.1 million, or 88 percent of its $25 million goal.
