Platinum Seal allows donors to focus on progress and results
Support Connection is proud to announce that they have earned the 2020 Platinum Seal of Transparency, the highest level of recognition offered by GuideStar, a service of Candid. By sharing metrics that highlight progress Support Connection is making toward its mission, the organization is helping donors move beyond simplistic ways of nonprofit evaluation such as overhead ratios.
By updating their GuideStar Nonprofit Profile to the Platinum level, Support Connection can now easily share a wealth of up-to-date organizational metrics with their supporters as well as GuideStar’s immense online audience, which includes donors, grantmakers, our peers, and the media. Through their profile, they also provide new and current information to 200+ charitable websites and applications that use GuideStar data, such as AmazonSmile, Facebook, and Network for Good.
To reach the Platinum level, Support Connection added extensive information to its Nonprofit Profile on GuideStar: basic contact and organizational information; in-depth financial information; qualitative information about goals, strategies, and capabilities; and quantitative information about results and progress toward its mission.
By taking the time to provide this information, Support Connection has demonstrated its commitment to transparency and to giving donors and funders meaningful data to evaluate nonprofit performance.
