BBB's Accredited Charity Seal is a valued trustmark that communicates your charity’s high standards to your potential donors. Charity Seal Program participants may display the Charity Seal on their websites, fundraising solicitations, and in printed material.
Participation in the Charity Seal program is wholly voluntary, and all BBB charity reviews are performed free-of-charge. Once a review is complete, eligible nonprofits are invited to join the Charity Seal program. There is a modest fee for use of BBB's Accredited Charity Seal (which is based on the nonprofit’s size) and associated program benefits designed to assist charities in maximizing their valuable BBB Charity Accreditation.
BBB Accredited Charity Seal holders must stay in compliance with all 20 Standards for Charity Accountability.
If you work for a charity that has met all 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability and are interested in BBB's Accredited Charity Seal program, please email BBB at email@example.com or call 704-927-8612.
BBB is committed to protecting the integrity of the charity seal. Seal holder organizations will be monitored for adherence to the program's requirements, and local charities that no longer qualify for participation will be required to stop displaying the seal.
The following Accredited Charities (i.e., meet all 20 BBB Charity Standards for Accountability) have chosen to participate in the BBB Accredited Charity Seal program.
