While there is no cost to charities for the BBB to conduct a review and issue a report, the BBB logo is a registered trademark and there are limitations to its use. In that regard, the BBB does offer charities an optional charity seal program for charities interested in affiliating with the BBB and using the local for promotional purposes. Charities are required to meet all BBB standards in order to be eligible which then allows charities to display the BBB accredited charity seal logo on websites and in solicitation materials. Additional details are as follows:
