Warriors & Quiet Waters Named a Top-Rated Veterans Charity

Approximately 73 cents of every dollar spent goes directly toward supporting post-9/11 combat veterans and their loved ones.

What makes WQW different than other Veteran Service Organizations?

“Receiving Charity Navigator’s highest possible rating affirms WQW’s financial health and adherence to industry best practices, transparency, and accountability,” said WQW’s Director of Development Emily Sather. “We hope this ‘seal of approval’ is one more reason why you can support WQW with confidence.”


Guidestat Platinum Transparency Seal 2021

GuideStar has awarded WQW with their Platinum Seal of Transparency for 2021. This award is important to us because transparency matters.

Charity Navigator

WQW has received its fourth consecutive four-star rating from Charity Navigator. Only 21% of charities they evaluate have received at least four consecutive four-star evaluations. Charity Navigator is America’s premier independent charity evaluator. Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that WQW adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes our mission in a fiscally responsible way.


PyschArmor has awarded WQW with their “Veteran Ready” certification through their educational platform to better prepare our personnel to interact with the Military-Veteran community.

Four Star Alliance

As a program of America’s Warrior Partnership, the Four Star Alliance is committed to serving transitioning service members, veterans, military families, and their caregivers with excellence. As a member, WQW has agreed to abide by their Standards of Excellence and we were thoroughly vetted for financial stability, excellent business practices, and willingness to make and take appropriate referrals.


GreatNonprofits has awarded WQW with their 2020 Top-Rated Nonprofit Award. The GreatNonprofits seal is the second most trusted rating seal, after the Better Business Bureau, according to their website. This award is the one and only people’s choice award where volunteers, donors, and people served by WQW were asked to share stories of inspiration and express appreciation that helped us secure this award.

Here’s why you should choose WQW for your charitable donation.

WQW has worked hard to maintain the highest ratings from many organizations over the years. Serving post-9/11 combat veterans and their loved ones is our focus. We pride ourselves on our commitment to transparency, industry best practices, and accountability.

“Receiving Charity Navigator’s highest possible rating affirms WQW’s financial health and adherence to industry best practices, transparency, and accountability.”
