  1. BBB Comment

Despite written BBB Wise Giving Alliance requests in the past year, this organization either has not responded to Alliance requests for information or has declined to be evaluated in relation to the Alliance’s Standards for Charity Accountability. While participation in the Alliance’s charity review efforts is voluntary, the Alliance believes that failure to participate may demonstrate a lack of commitment to transparency. Without the requested information, the Alliance cannot determine if this charity adheres to the Standards for Charity Accountability. A charity's willing disclosure of information beyond that typically included in its financial statements and government filings is, in the Alliance's view, an expression of openness that strengthens public trust in the charitable sector.

The BBB Wise Giving Alliance reports on national charities and determines if they meet 20 voluntary standards on matters such as charity finances, appeals, and governance. The Alliance does not evaluate the worthiness of the charitable program.

Charity Response:

"Since the Alliance's Standards are voluntary, and go beyond the requirements of local, state and federal laws and regulations, D.E.L.T.A. Rescue has elected not to be evaluated in accordance with such standards as the BBB. D.E.L.T.A. Rescue's election does not demonstrate a lack of commitment to transparency and accountability. D.E.L.T.A. Rescue budgets a percentage of its charitable contributions toward compliance with federal and state laws and public disclosure of its operations through state agencies and [other charity information sources available on the Internet]. Detailed information concerning D.E.L.T.A. Rescue's financials and mission is available from it upon request, from public agencies or at [other charity information sources available on the Internet]."
