The Accountability Wizard® is a risk-free learning tool and assessment where organizations partner with the Council to measure and build their internal policies and practices. The Council works hand-in-hand with organizations until they have met all of the Standards, earning them the Meets Standards® Seal. These nonprofits are listed on our website, in the Giving Guide in our semi-annual Smart Giver newsletter, celebrated on social media, and recommended to donors via phone and email inquiries. The Seal is a visual marker of nonprofit strength, and a great way for nonprofits to differentiate themselves, communicating their internal strength and impact to supporters.
The Accountability Wizard review offers your nonprofit the opportunity to:
Engage your board and staff in accountability issues in order to create a shared culture of accountability and transparency;
Align your organizational practices and procedures with the Accountability Standards®, with technical assistance from Council staff;
Earn the Meets Standards® Seal by meeting all of the Accountability Standards®, to use in your print and web materials to set your organization apart and demonstrate your organizational strength;
Build trust with donors by earning the Meets Standards® Seal; your organization will be recognized as one of the most trustworthy charities on the Smart Givers Network website and in our semi-annual Smart Giver newsletter.
