Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly earns Charities Review Council's Meets Standards© seal
Seal affirms LBFE is aligned with practices demonstrating good governance, transparency and strength
(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. 

LBFE' s full review report is available online at, and the organization will also be listed in Charities Review Council's bi-annual Smart Giver newsletter.
