Washington, DC, June 18, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) recently boosted its already stellar Charity Navigator rating to 99% from 96% in November 2023.

Williams, president and CEO of TMCF, said. “This best-in-class rating helps us establish trust among our supporters and donors.
