Charity Navigator recently awarded the CMTA a “Perfect 100” score for exceeding industry standards and outperforming other organizations that do similar work. We can think of no better way to sum up the CMTA’s record of accomplishments for 2021.
As the nonprofit ranking service said in announcing the awards, “The exceptional charities on this list execute their missions in a fiscally responsible way while adhering to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities.… Less than 1 percent of the thousands of charities rated by Charity Navigator have earned perfect scores.”
We are incredibly honored to be among the 1 percent.
We know, however, that the honor belongs to our community. We earned a “Perfect 100” because everyone involved in the organization gives 100 percent.
Every member of our CMTA community is committed to our mission of a world without CMT. They are all doing their utmost—from the researchers spending long hours in labs around the globe to the branch leaders who keep members engaged and educated to the Camp Footprint counselors, most of whom have CMT, who provide shining examples of how to live with the disease.
The key to the CMTA’s Perfect 100 is that our community outreach efforts invigorate and inform our research efforts, with the community providing the energy, excitement and funding for the research. You’ll read about all of it in the coming pages.
With best regards,
Amy Gray, Chief Executive Officer
