We’re thrilled to announce that Girl Scouts River Valleys is again a Charities Review Council Meets Standards® organization!
Nonprofit organizations, such as Girl Scouts River Valleys, earn the Meets Standards® seal by voluntarily participating in Charities Review Council’s Accountability Wizard® review process. The only web-based product of its kind, the Accountability Wizard® is a time-tested tool, elevated by nationally recognized capacity building practitioners and philanthropic thought leaders. The Accountability Wizard® is based on Charities Review Council’s 25 Accountability Standards®, a balance of nonprofit sector promising practices, public expectations, and legal requirements, representing the shared expectations between donors and nonprofits.
The review process examined four key areas: Public Disclosure, Governance, Financial Activity, and Fundraising. As a result, Girl Scouts River Valleys has aligned its practices, policies and procedures to widely accepted standards of accountability, leading us to greater strength, efficacy and to the achievement of the Meets Standards® seal. By participating in the Accountability Wizard® review process, Girl Scouts River Valleys demonstrates responsibility, integrity and transparency to donors as well as the general public.
