“For restaurants, there’s Yelp…For nonprofits, there’s GuideStar.”
Recently, the Bread Line earned a Platinum Seal of Transparency on GuideStar. GuideStar is a database service that reports on non-profit organizations. The mission of GuideStar is “to revolutionize philanthropy by providing information that advances transparency, enables users to make better decisions, and encourages charitable giving.” GuideStar gathers and distributes information to potential donors – so that they can make an informed choice on which organization to support. Non-profit leaders utilize GuideStar for peer-to-peer learning.
The Platinum Seal of Transparency means that as a non-profit, Bread Line’s year-to-year information regarding programmatic data is completely accessible and visible. We have shared enough information about our operations to earn the Platinum Seal.
