Because of an endowment formed by early board members and income from investments, 100 percent of funds currently raised go toward programs that benefit Big Shoulders Fund schools and the students they serve. These schools serve as beacons of hope for generations of children and families regardless of their ethnic, racial, or religious backgrounds.
For 11 consecutive years, Big Shoulders Fund has received a Four Star Rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent evaluator of charities. Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that Big Shoulders excels, compared to other charities in America, in successfully managing the finances of our organization in an efficient and stable manner. This consistency in our rating is an exceptional feat.
