Local Charity Reporting Service


The Tri-State Better Business Bureau Charity Reporting Service reviews local charities in our area against the BBB Standards for Charity Accountability.  These standards which address organizational governance, fundraising, and financial issues, also include a number of provisions to strengthen charitable accountability to donors.

The Tri-State BBB Charity Reporting Service also offers an Accredited Charity Seal to authorized local charities that meet the BBB Standards for Charity Accountability.  This program allows the authorized charities to inform their donors and other funders that the organization meets the Standards for Charity Accountability; addresses accountability issues like donor privacy and charity effectiveness that go beyond what the government require; and works to increase donor confidence and strengthen public trust in philanthropy.
