BBB issues Charity Reports on all organizations, whether or not they are BBB accredited. If an organization is a BBB Accredited Charity, it is stated in this report.
This organization met all 20 Standards for Charity Accountability during its last evaluation. Currently, BBB's information on this organization is being updated, and no report is available at this time.
BBB Charity Information Service has requested current materials from this organization. When materials have been supplied and a report is complete, it will be available at no charge by contacting this office or by visiting our web site. If the organization is a charity, the report also will include the result of an evaluation in relation to BBB's Standards for Charity Accountability.
BBB Charity Information Service reports on local charities and determines if they meet voluntary standards on matters such as charity finances, appeals, and governance. BBB Charity Information Service does not evaluate the worthiness of a charitable program.

In an effort to assist you in making a responsible decision, the BBB suggests you follow these guidelines:
1. Use your head as well as your heart. Beware of telephone solicitations. The ultimate telephone solicitation scam can result when callers secure your pledge for a donation to a non-existent charity.
2. If you are tempted to respond to a telephone appeal, request that literature be sent to you along with the organizations latest financial statement BEFORE you make a contribution. This information will allow you to determine how much of your donation actually goes to the cause, how much to fund raising and administrative costs.
3. Beware of "runners" who will be right over to pick up your check.
4. Never make cash donations, always pay by check with the endorsement made out to the charity, not the person collecting.
Bona fide solicitors will welcome the requests, and gladly furnish the information, bogus solicitors will not be able to provide this information or will attempt to talk themselves out of an uncomfortable situation and go on to a less "educated giver".
