National Kidney Foundation of Michigan Receives 5th 4-Star Rating

Earns Prestigious Evaluation from Charity Navigator

ANN ARBOR — For the fifth consecutive year, the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan has been recognized for its success in sound fiscal management by receiving a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator.

The four out of four star rating indicates that the NKFM has succeeded in efficiently managing and growing its finances throughout the last year. Charity Navigator is the leading charity evaluator in America and only gives 4-star ratings to a quarter of the charities it evaluates. Only 5 percent of these charities have received the prestigious 4-star rating for five consecutive years or more. 

The coveted ranking shows that the NKFM outperforms the majority of other nonprofit agencies in America in fiscal responsibility. This exceptional designation differentiates the NKFM from its peers and demonstrates the reliability and efficiency of the organization’s services. 

“The NKFM is extremely honored to receive a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for the fifth consecutive year,” said NKFM President and CEO Daniel Carney. “We’ll strive to continue, and even improve upon, the sound business practices that have continually earned our organization this recognition.”  

The recognition comes at a time when the NKFM is preparing to launch a new website. The website,, emphasizes the Foundation’s commitment to preventing obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and kidney disease in Michigan and highlights the outstanding education, prevention programs, and patient services that the NKFM offers throughout the state.

The NKFM is based in Ann Arbor, with offices in Grand Rapids, Flint, and Detroit. For more information on the NKFM’s programs and services, or for information about kidney disease and its leading causes, visit or call 800-482-1455.
