We Are A Meets Standards® Organization!
July 5, 2016
We’re thrilled to announce that Minnesota Alliance With Youth is now a Charities Review Council Meets Standards® organization! Nonprofit organizations, such as the Alliance, 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, Minnesota Alliance With Youth 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, the Alliance demonstrates responsibility, integrity and transparency to donors as well as the general public.
“This truly supports the Alliance’s expectation to continually be a high quality organization!” said Sarah Dixon, President & CEO of Minnesota Alliance With Youth.
