Benefits of the Program

The Tri-State BBB believes our Charity Reporting Service can play a vital role in today's burgeoning philanthropic sector by establishing a framework of trust between donors and non-profit organizations in the same way the BBB currently brings buyers and sellers together.

There are three major categories of benefits to the Charity Reporting Service.

1. Education
  • Aids donors in making informed decisions through BBB charity reports.
  • Provides general information about charitable giving and the non-profit sector.
  • Publicizes the activities of those engaged in unscrupulous fundraising activities

2. Public Service

Valuable to members of the community at large by ensuring that the greatest possible portion of donated money goes to the cause for which it was intended.

3. Self-Regulation
Plays a key role in the self-regulation of the non-profit sector by implementing voluntary standards for accountability.
