Kids-Lift is proud to announce we’ve earned a 2020 Bronze Seal of Transparency for our Nonprofit Profile on GuideStar. GuideStar awards the seal to nonprofit organizations that show their commitment to transparency by adding information to their Nonprofit Profiles so the members of their community, as well as more than 10 million GuideStar users, can learn about their mission and programs.
The information we provided on our Nonprofit Profile will help more people reach us, which will allow us, in turn, to help more people. More than 200 charitable websites and apps also use GuideStar data, including AmazonSmile, Facebook, and Network for Good, which will help us reach even further. When it comes to nonprofit organizations, transparency is vital. We’re delighted to be recognized for our commitment.
GuideStar by Candid is a directory of nonprofit organizations that helps potential donors connect with causes they care about, understand an organization’s mission, and learn how donations are used.In February 2019, GuideStar—which had long been the premier source of information on U.S.-based nonprofits—joined forces with Foundation Center, the leader in information related to global philanthropy. Together, they formed the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization Candid, whose mission is to offer data on where an organization’s money comes from, how it is spent, and why it matters. Today, Candid provides the most comprehensive data tools on nonprofits, foundations, and grants in the world. Access the GuideStar database or learn more about Candid at candid.org.
