BBB Comments

Despite written Better Business Bureau requests in the past year, this organization either has not provided current information or has declined to be evaluated in relation to the BBB's charity standards. While participation in the BBB's charity review efforts is voluntary, the BBB believes that this lack of cooperation may demonstrate a lack of commitment to transparency. Without the requested information, the BBB cannot verify if the charity adheres to the BBB charity standards. 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 reports on charities and determines if they meet 20 standards on matters such as charity finances, appeals and governance. The BBB does not evaluate the worthiness of a charitable program.

The report is not intended to recommend or deprecate, and is furnished solely to assist you in exercising your own judgment. An organization may change its practices at any time without notice. The Better Business Bureau is a registered service mark of the Council of Better Business Bureaus, Inc.
