Catholic Charities earns highest rating from Charity Navigator for good governance and financial responsibility of donor investments.
Pull Quote (200 Character Max): 
“Catholic Charities’ exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” said Michael Thatcher, president and CEO of Charity Navigator.
Story Summary (100 Character Max): 
Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator.

As spring is traditionally the time of planting, it also brings to mind the thought of harvesting that labor’s fruits. This passage from the book of Leviticus gives guidance regarding some ethical and community-minded practices:

“When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and for the foreigner residing among you.” — Leviticus 23:22
