(MINNEAPOLIS - January 25, 2018) The Minneapolis/St. Paul Chapter of Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly (LBFE)
recently received notification that it has once again earned the Charities Review Council's Meets Standards® seal, a visual marker of nonprofit strength. Nonprofit organizations, such as LBFE
, earn the Meets Standards® seal by voluntarily participating in Charities Review Council's review process.
The review process is based on Charities Review Council's 25 Accountability Standards®, a balance of nonprofit sector practices, public expectations, and legal requirements, representing the shared expectations between donors and nonprofits. The review process examined four key areas: Public Disclosure, Governance, Financial Activity, and Fundraising. As a result, LBFE
has aligned its practices, policies and procedures with widely accepted standards of accountability, leading the organization to greater strength, efficacy and to the achievement of the Meets Standards® seal. By participating in the review process, LBFE demonstrates responsibility, integrity and transparency to donors as well as the general public.
full review report is available online at www.smartgivers.org, and the organization will also be listed in Charities Review Council's bi-annual Smart Giver newsletter.
